This is not an emergency, but certainly a curiosity to me, all thoughts/input welcome.
I have a RIR, she is 4 years old. Generally healthy, mid pecking order, no weight loss, eating/drinking fine. Her problem is her feathers. She has always looked a bit 'tatty', has been treated for lice, has non currently. She is finishing up her molt, so not at her best anyway, but her feathers are growing back looking somewhat like a frizzle! The ends of the feathers look like they have 'split ends', like she has no barbicels to hold them all together. I have thought about depluming mite, but can find no evidence.
