Balding under wings- molting???

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
One of my bantam hens has missing feathers under her wings, completely bald to the skin with no apparent irritation. She still has feathers on her chest and the remainder of her body. She is only 6 1/2 months old and I am worried about her. From what I've read, she is too young to be molting and doesn't have any new feathers or quills coming out from the bald areas. Any insight?

I'd like to also add that this is the only bird of 13 with this "condition." She has been acting normally, eating, drinking and keeping up with the flock.
