Chickens are losing their neck feathers! (not molting) - Page 4

post #31 of 34
I add ash from my wood stove to my dirt bath. Helps kill mice and live. If you don't have a wood stove then have a little fire wait too it dies out and take all ashes and mix with dirt. If they already have mites or live try soaking their legs in olive girl. My friend told me that works well!

is it normal for them to lose feathers in the middle of the winter?
It's been 20 to 30 degrees here
I'm worried that they won't have insulation if it goes on much more
