We are rescuing a chicken that is pretty naked. It was bullied by the other birds. My question is since it has no feathers, should I have a heat lamp at night for her? I am going to make her a jacket until she grows some feathers. I am conflicted about the heat lamp because I really didn't want to use it with my other girls... Any other suggestion on caring for this girl are appreciated!
Thanks

If this is one of your chickens, just separate her till her new feathers are coming in. If she is separated then the heat issue for the others is not there. If your are rescuing her from another place then she should be quarantined anyway.
