It's HOT out there!

Oh my poor chickens! I do believe they are molting due to the heat (we are in southeast Texas, and it's been over 100 for almost 2 weeks now!). Our oldest hen, Mama, has lost more than half her feathers (including most of her wing feathers). It's so sad... she looks so pitiful! I'm gonna try to get a picture of her and add it here later. We've had chickens for almost 3 years now, and I've never seen them do anything like this. The chicken coop looks like someone plucked a bird because there are so many feathers on the ground! All of them have dropped a considerable amount. I sure hope it's just the heat and that nothing else is wrong!
