This past summer I adopted/rescued a little silkie hen who was always getting picked on. She was basically plucked. She had no feathers on her back, part of her wings , chest and head! (picture attached is of her when we first got her) So I took her under my wing so she wouldn't get picked on any more by roosters.
Now a 4-5 months have gone by and I still don't notice her feathers growing back. Almost looks a bit worse lately? Possibly molting? Her feathers that should be growing back look like longer quills now.. is that a good sign? Definitly feel the quills are growing as she was more bald before. Just seems still naked! Her skin seems a bit dry aswell and possibly flaking.
Any advice would be appreciated!
