    i have 10 chickens and out of all of them..my two bo's have very dull feathers that isnt soft. my two australorps whom have the glossiest coats/softest...makes me question if my two bo's are sick? the bo's look healthy(aside from their coats), drinking and eating well. their combs are bright red...but sometimes my runt bo's comb can be a litttle on the pink side.

    Try adding some BOSS( black oil sunflower seeds ) as a snack. The oils should leak into the feathers and add gloss.
