I have some 2 month old chickens in a grow out pen. Some are roosters and some are hens. Some of them are losing their feathers on their backs. I don't see any bugs on them when I look, but I don't know. Anybody have any ideas on why this is happening to them? Thanks.

We are having problems with knats something terrible, so the chicks are pecking everything. I went ahead and spread seven dust in their pens and that seemed to take care of it. Any bugs of any kind would be taken care of also. Mites, Lice included. Just a suggestion.

Thanks. I am going to try that and see if that helps. I am willing to try anything to get them looking healthy again.
