    I have a PBR hen, 21 months old that was eggbound a week ago so we took her inside to work it out, we live in Vemrmont. I think the couple of days inside triggered her to molt, now she is back in the coop but loosing most of her feathers, do you think I should have a houseguest again for a while or will she be OK n the coop that I keep between 25 and 40 degrees. Tonight is going down to 10 below zero.
