Ok so I am not new to chickens, have had them all my life practically and I do realize that roosters will wear the feathers off their backs and tails to some degree however....I think I am dealing with more than that right now. At first that's all I thought it was because there were like five roosters to thirty hens so I took out all but two roosters and then split one rooster to six hens that are the same breed. Now there is on rooster to six hens in one pen and they aren't having feather issues AT ALL. Then the other pen has one rooster to 20 hens and even he has some feathers missing on his chest. Some of the hens look so pathetic that if I processed them part of the work is already done for lack of feathering on their backs and top of their wings and a few their butts. I haven't seem any bugs (lice or mites) and we have sprinkled them and their coop with louse powder a few times. I'm not sure what in the heck I am dealing with here so if anyone has any ideas PLEASE throw them at me as I really want to help these girls look better. They seem to act fine and don't act sick at all. I'll throw a pic in of one that is also broody so that's why she is giving me that don't touch me look.
