I have two hens in a heavy molt right now. One has large bald patches on her back and butt, with pin feathers just coming in. One is still looking ragged, but her pin feathers are opening and she had no exposed skin. Both look a bit pale in their face-sort of salmon colored instead of a healthy red. It's pretty cold here: 20-30*F. I have added grower/showbird crumbles in with the layer pellets to up protein, and am leaving BOSS out. Still, I know they are working hard to stay warm. For now, they're still in with the rest of the 8-bird flock. Would you do anything else for them? I wish I could explain to them they waited too long for this!!! I have one more who looks like she's about to drop all the feathers on her neck and belly any minute now. Terrible timing!
