    My one hen has a severe red patch below her comb. She has loss of feathers down to the quills on both sides of her back. We thought that she is getting pecked on by the flock. Looking at some of my other hens they have small red patches by their combs. no loss of feathers. Do I need to be worried. The first hen has had this for awhile now.

    Hi ttimmerman,
    Is there anyway you could post a few pictures? My first guess would be a Rooster is doing the damage but I have a feeling your going to say that you do not have a rooster, that is why pictures would be beneficial. Thanks and Best of luck finding a remedy to your problem.
