    I recently purchased 6 laying hens that are about 18 months old. One of them has no feathers on her hiney. All around is just bare. I have checked for mites and there are none. She is not being pecked by other chickens. What could be the cause??

    I have 2 white leghorns that are going thru a molt. Their necks are bald and their hiney is bald as well.

    The others went thru the same thing but now have all their feathers back.
