We just returned from a mini vacation (which was wonderful) to find one of my hens missing a streak of feathers. We had a neighbour taking care of them. Her breast is missing a clump of feathers and all down her keel is missing feathers right down to the skin. There's no visible injuries other then the missing feathers. I am wondering if something tried to grab her but we can't find any signs of entry or damage to the run or coop. One other bird has a little spot but nothing like this one. Anyone with an idea what happened?
Sorry for the picture quality... I'm holding the hen with one hand and taking the picture without being able to "see" what I'm shooting. Thanks
