I received this maran from the same maran I received the other a week later after getting all my other three pullets. I would like to ad she is the only chicken with this problem. She eats and drinks throughout the day. And plucks out her own feathers. 😫 comb is good and legs are good. She eats and drinks fine but picks her feathers off so much she has a bear bottom! 😳 I gave her an Epsom salt & olive oil bath and was able to see more clearly that she is just in fact loosing feathers! No mites or lice and feces is good and healthy. But why is this happening? I live in California and although some mornings get chilli by 11am it's 75 degrees out here! She is the only hen having odd symptoms! Is it molting? Stress? Or is something else going on? I use dietamacious earth and haven't seen anything alarming. Coop and run are well maintained as well. Very concerned. I cross posted this in emergencies & health but haven't received any comments or suggestions.
