I have a flock of 3 hen's. 1 of them started losing feathers this week. Like, a lot of feathers. It is November in Northern California and the temperature has dropped from 100's to 60's (Fahrenheit), so I don't think she is molting.
I have observed them during the daytime and it doesn't look like any of the other birds are picking on her or pecking at her.
Her behavior and energy levels appear to be normal.
I am going to look for mites and lice when I get home tonight. Is there anything else I should do or watch out for? Any tips or tricks on diagnosing this and helping her are greatly appreciated!
