What is this?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Can anyone tell me what this is?  I have 9 hens and 1 rooster (4 cornish 5 buff orphington-hens)(blue cochin rooster) the cornish shown is the only one with these signs, and out of the buffs 3 of them have this feather loss.  All chickens are around 10mo old and did not molt in the winter(I live in S TX wasn't really a winter)  All the birds have been wormed and they get dusted often.  These are my first chickens so I am unsure as to what exactly this is.  They are also all still laying eggs I get about 6-8 a day and are eating fine with lots of energy.

If its only in that area i would think its from the rooster mating.

What are you 'dusting' with?

What and how exactly are you feeding?

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
