    I noticed my 10 week hens all have white lines (cracks?) on their faces where there aren't any feathers. The weather is between 60-80 degrees F. so I don't think that their freezing. Any advice?

    can you post a picture please?? (you have enough posts to be able to use pics now).
    Not sure without picture what you are talking about.....chickens do have bald spots on their face and this is normal. Have you tried to see if the "white" lines are the skin itself or something on top of the skin, (like yeast infection or tried up food, etc)???
    Does it look sore, or smell bad???
    Pic would help [​IMG]
