    I noticed this morning my rooster has no feathers on top of his head. I don't remember noticing this so it is like suddenly he's bald. What could have caused this problem?> Thanx...

    One of 3 things could be the problem:
    1. He's starting a molt.
    2. He has bugs and the irritation is causing him to scratch out his own feathers.
    3. Your other birds have picked his head bald.

    You will need to figure out his scenario is taking place.

    Good luck.
