    Hey guys,
    This started about a month ago, I though it was just moulting but the skin is getting dark patches and no feathers are growing back. She's eating well and doesn't seem to show signs of illness. Any ideas? Thanks! Xx[​IMG][/IMG]

    hi, what is your hen to Rooster ratio? That looks like an overzealous over breeding cock's work me. You may want to try one of the covers they make for the hens back a saddle.
