feathers turning white

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

My poor red hen. She is about 2 years old, about a year ago she started getting white spots. Now she is turning white, and some of her feathers only have the quill . Like a feather skeleton. Does anybody know what this is? I've attached pictures. (I think?)Also the same hen hurt her leg and didn't walk for a little while , now she has a limp, but she keeps up. I thought it was bumblefoot, but her leg is hard to the touch. It doesn't seem swollen or red. I think it may have gotten broken and healed crooked? Thanks for any advise on helping her out.[img][/img]
