I have 3 hens and one Roo. My dominant hen is losing feathers at an alarming rate. She is usually the one picking on the other two so I have a hard time believing the other hens or Roo is beating her up? The weather here is cold, will they molt in the cold?

My chickens start molting around the end of october. They start slowing down egg laying at that time also. Its wierd :) you would think they would do that at warmer temps but thats the way nature goes. They will be fine.
