Red Featherless Area

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Our almost year-old Barred Rock hen has this featherless area under her vent. She is acting perfectly normal, running around and foraging, and we got an egg from her just this evening. Attached is a photo of her backside with the featherless area. Is this bacteria or something? Any help appreciated.

You might have mites, when's the last time you used DE? You can dust each bird at night while they're roosting.

 

here are some other possibilities:
