I had two lovely golden comets and added a Cochin who needed rehoming to my little flock. Everyone seems to have adjusted well, and they are all flocking together and doing well. The Cochin is a bit bossy, but it all worked out.
However, the Cochin has two bald patches under her wings and her whole backside is looking a little rough - broken/missing feather, just kinda ratty. She is eating and laying (2/week) and behaving just fine, so I was thinking molt and/or rehoming stress, but it has been a few weeks now and she still looking a little rough back there.
Any ideas? Maybe Mites? She has access to layer feed, oyster shell, grit and water, free ranges for 1 to 2 hours daily, has access to a grass in her coop and gets a good mix of table scraps.
Or am I over-thinking this, and it is just molting and/or rehoming stress, and those things take a while?
