    Hello,

    I noticed yesterday that my 11 week old RIR has a strange problem with her feathers. They look like they are rubbing against something. I haven't noticed a change in her behaviour. We have six and they all roost right on top of each other at night, could this be causing the problem? We are using a temporary roost system that we plan on fixing today. I sprinkled her with the hose to see if it was a substance making the feathers stick, but it doesn't seem to be. Her feathers in the picture are slightly wet because of this.
