Hildegard Pauline is getting her feathers back, although she still has some red skin showing. Even though I am giving her cat food and tuna for extra protein she is not laying eggs. I hope we won't have to wait until Spring!
Johanna seems to be molting now. She is doing it a more practical way though - she loses and regrows them at the same time rather than losing her feathers all at once. She is down to an egg every other day now.
I had no idea that chickens pooped so much. They are as bad as the dogs. Other than that, we love having our chickens, even when I have to go out into the snow to take care of them.
