@heodi79 Looks to me like someone in your flock is cannibalizing the others. Get those being eaten into a separate area away from those that still have normal bottoms. wash them real well with saline wash and use either Neosporin with out pain relief or My favorite because it heals and disguises the wound Blue Kote TSC carries it. Look at all your hens bottoms the one who has no feathers missing is probably your culprit unless you have a rat in your coop. Sad to say chickens will do this kind of thing. But also this is the duck thread so I'd also post here.http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures sorry for your losses. Once you remove the ones with the missing feathers and wounds make sure they cannot get to each other because chickens are drawn to red that is one reason I like Blue Kote so well.
