I have a few hens that are missing all of there back feathers can anyone help
Do you have a rooster?
yes but he is only a few months
Is he mounting the hens yet?
All the feathers on their backs, or all the feather's on their back ends?
Either he is, or they are molting. It is molting season right now.
yes but this is big area that has no feathers
both back and back end
Sounds like your rooster has some favorite hens. You may have to separate them until they can grow their feathers back.
They are probably eating them. Chickens get bored and pluck each others feathers. Almost my whole flock looked like that last year. They grow back. People would always coment on their red butts. Try a "Flock Block", it will give them something to peck at.
