A bunch of my hens are losing feathers and its winter. Shouldn't they be gaining feathers? I checked around for blood or scratches but found nothing. Please help!

I have 3 that are molting here. Last year poor Sophie was pretty much buck naked for the coldest part of our winters here - mid January. She's getting it done earlier this year. ;) At least its been a mild December so she'll be good to go again come January.
