So, my flock is currently deep into their molt. Earlier this week, one of our WH's got stuck in the pond and couldn't get out. My husband had to rescue her, and then spent a half hour warming her back up in a towel held against his chest. He was absolutely convinced the duck would have drowned, if he hadn't got to her in time. Then, today it happened again with one of our IR's! What the heck?! We're assuming this is happening because of their lack of feathers right now... At night, we lock the flock inside a long run, with access to their nesting boxes, egglu cube and a 5 foot deep pond that we dug into the ground this past spring. Should we drain the pond until my girls are all fully feathered again? In all my research, I have never heard of anything like this!
