Okay, a few of the pullets have began to lose a few feathers but all of my Partridge Rocks have lost them in the belly area, and Yes one tried to go Broody but the others have not. I also have a Speckled Sussex that is losing her feathers in the belly area and some around the vent/backside area. My question is: Are mini molts what they are going through, or is it normal for them to lose the majority of feathers underneath and none on the head/back/tail? No mites or lice or other issues, I've checked throughly, still laying eggs everyday but the location of feather loss is interesting. Any comments would be helpful.
