I have a hen with something going on in her reproductive tract, she’s been on a course of antibiotics. Likely genetic reproductive issue leading to EYP. She’s also molting at the same time and it’s been a hard molt. She’s pretty high up in the pecking order so it’s hard to tell when she’s feeling worse than normal. Anyway, it’s gotten a bit chilly in Washington, from 70 deg nights to 45 pretty quickly. She’s always puffed up now and has been shaking when I hold her. I know chickens are generally tough but I’m worried about her being chilled while ill. Is this a concern or is she fine with the hard molt? Thanks!
