My wife and I have a small flock of four hens in central Maine, including two Rhode Island Reds that are about a year old. One of the Reds has just started to molt. Is a late-season molt like this unusual? Should we do anything? We're coming out of a January thaw and heading back into cold weather, which can mean sub-zero nighttime temps at times. Our small coop is unheated, but I pile bags of leaves up against the exterior when it's cold, and place horse blankets on the roof. I also add extra bedding when it's very cold. This is our second winter keeping chickens and things have worked out fine so far during the winter months, but we've never had a hen molt this late before. Thanks.
