    My lovely hen is losing her wing feathers on both wings. She has spent the pass two maybe three months sitting on eggs. We tried to let her hatch some but she kicked out all the fertilized eggs and only had one unfertilized egg under her sooooo Stinky. Anyway after that we put the rooster up and she spent the next two months sitting on eggs until we took them from her daily. Now she is walking around with her wing feathers missing it is not pretty at all. Please don't let anything be wrong with her. [​IMG]
