This may be a dumb question, but could it be from severe overmating and packing? We recently had 2 roos in with 6 hens (I know this is bad, but several of our hens died unexpectedly from a dog attack while free ranging, and left us with a bad ratio.) We have gotten rid of the mean rooster, but he was in there for several weeks and she was both of the roo's favorite. Whenever one bred her the other eould attack him and they had a whole fight right on top of her. She was pretty messed up, and her back is still bare. Maybe she's just in shock or something still? I'm just being hopeful, but thought I'd throw it out there. Thanks guys.
