I visited a farm up the street from us today. They have an apple orchard, and sell eggs. I was able to walk back to where their chickens were. Almost every hen had no tail feathers. Their butts were bare and red. What would cause that?
I was worried about that. As soon as I saw them, I wanted to leave because I was worried about mites or lice. My 5 girls have beautiful feathers and nice fluffy butt feathers. I felt so bad for these girls. In a dirt lot, apparently only used for eggs and the eggs are being sold at free range prices when they obviously aren't free range.
