    Hi, i am new on this website...maybe someone can help me...2 of my 2007 poulets (Isa Browns) have lost feathers on their neck and they look terrible and i have treated them 3 times with 7dust and diatomaceous earth and let them dust in it also and dusted the whole coop. They are free range most of the time and i feed them "scratch" from our mill...a blend of i think 4-5 different grains. So...they are still like this and they are my best layers...they dont miss a day laying an egg. Everything i have read with all the poultry diseases...indicate that the egg production goes down and they lay really good! All of the other chickens didnt get this...so i dont know if it is a nutritional deficiency or what?!?!?! Anyone have any idea? i cant figure it out!!! Thanks [​IMG] Jamie

    If they are around 18 months they are probably molting.
