    My chicken has started to molt. She has already lost about 200 feathers. The thing I am worrying about is how she has a bald spot on her back, between her wings. I don't know if that would be a problem, since we are in winter... please help!

    Do you have a rooster? Looks more like loss of feathers from over mating.
