Hi Everyone, I just registered because it looks like you are all a group of very seasoned chicken owners. This is my 3rd year. The flock I have right now are all only just over a year old. The rest of my girls are all in good health, very happy, despite the recent heat and good layers. Only just over the last few weeks, one of my buff orpingtons has recently started to lose lots of feathers. I wasn't sure if it was the rooster at first. I noticed he was being particularly rough with her. But the rooster got eaten by a fox last week, and her condition continues to get worse. Yesterday, I noticed the skin around her eye was swollen and looked paler than the skin on the other side, and on her comb. It's not oozing anything and it's not swollen shut. Just the skin looks irritated. She's also noticably smaller than she used to be so I think she's losing weight, and she continues to lose feathers. Patches are missing now. As I said, all the others look good. I wonder if it's an illness or if the rest of the girls are taking over the rooster's aggressive behavior, causing her to be isolated and get less food. Any suggestions or help is appreciated. Thanks!
