Missing Butt and Tail Feathers

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi All,


I have a Speckled Sussex who has all of a sudden started to lose all of her feathers around her bottom.  Tail feathers are also starting to fall out.  Any ideas?  She doesn't seem to be picked on by other birds (only a flock of five).


Kind regards

Hi, and welcome to BYC.  I have only a flock of five also and have one with a bare bottom also.  She is being pecked by another hen (I'm guessing mostly at night) that is wearing pin-less peepers.  Can't seem to break her, even when I isolate her she behaves for a while and then resumes her habit.


I have read that I need to spray her with blue note (and to be careful not to get it on yourself because it doesn't wash off) and I am going to try that today.


Good luck with your flock.
