    Will the feather loss caused by hard breading regrow w/o doing anything or does it need to be treated/protected. Some are 2 or 3 square inches, the worst is 8 or 9 square inches (3 1/2 " diameter).
    The cause has been removed.
    Thanks

    A few of my chickens have a bare back patch at the base of their tail. Is it their whole back?

    I had the same problem. You need hen saddles sometimes call hen aprons too. I made mine but you can buy them. They go across their back. Just look them up they really work. Hope it help you!
