I have a few mixed "banty hens" that we adopted from a friend last year. I'm interested in finding out what breed they are, mostly because I'm concerned about some missing feathers. I'm wondering if it is a characteristic of the breed. You know, like naked neck chickens. They are a light blond color, with feathers that flip up all over their bodies. They also have light feathering on their feet. When they extend their necks their feathers are very sparse. They lay brown medium sized eggs. They are missing feathers at the top of their wings, where their "shoulders" are and I noticed while they were foraging that their underbellies are red and missing feathers. I can't see any blood or injuries, just missing feathers. Plus, they won't really roost on the roosting bars, they will only sit on the edge of a bucket I have filled with bedding. I wonder if it's because their bellies are bare? Can anyone help me out?
