Not sure if this is normal but one of my hens went into a hard molt and another looks to be on the verge. The temperatures have been below freezing at night and sometimes during the day. I live near the ocean so it's also quite windy. We have a strong wind chill factor. I have not supplied heat for them. There is a 75 watt heat emitter for reptiles on the ceiling of the hen house that I have only turned on twice when the temps went subzero but it has not been on otherwise. It stays off and is only there for emergency subzero dips. She seems to be extremely cold, stands around all hunched over and shivering. Poor little guy. I am trying to give her as much protein as possible but it's tough because the other hens take all the food and she is uncomfortable so she won't go for it. She's almost completely bald on her head and neck and getting balder on her back and shoulders. I know she is molting because I see the pin feathers coming in. Ouch! I also took off her hen saver because it seemed to be making her even more uncomfortable and immobile but now she is nervous about the roo and it was probably also keeping her back warm. I have looked around and not found any info on dealing with hen aprons and molting. On or off? Any issues there? Anything else I can do for her? Ideas, opinions, and lectures welcome. Ridicule accepted with grace if informative. Thanks.
