She lost some feathers a while back, and she just now started getting some new growth. Her skin is dry and flaky, and I couldn't see any type of mite or eggs. I have 6 Ameraucanas and they all stopped laying about 2 weeks ago. I have four other hens that lay just fine, but the Ameraucanas have gone on strike. I know the days have shortened, but i had this Amaeraucana laying pretty consistent for most of last winter. The other 5 look fine except for a couple that have lost tail feathers which i chalked up to the new rooster.
