Hi, if anyone can verify, please. Have chickens with bald spot on breast. They are just getting feathers and noticed all have a bald spot on the breast in the same area. Looks irritated on some. It's also on the same side in all. They are bantams and was told the mom was silky has feathered feet. I read molting spring, bad bully in bunch, and add protein in diet.
Very concerned,
Thanks!

Can you post a picture? Is the bald spot where their crop is located? Do you smell any fermented odors? Apply blu-kote or antibiotic ointment without caine or pain. Is their nesting area soft or wires?

Give ACV in their water since it has numerous health benefits and supports the immune system. It is particularly good at times of stress which can cause chickens to pick up disease when the immune system is low.
