... lose their feathers below their chest? I have a hen that I think has been broody. I pull her out of the coop several times a day. I usually wear gloves, because she has tried to peck me when I take her out. Today, I was not wearing my gloves, so I noticed that her "chest" below her crop felt really warm. I looked under her, and she has NO FEATHERS on her underside. Her butt is fluffy like it normally is. The front of her chest looks normal. The skin does not look red or strange in any way, except that she has no feathers there! Please tell me this is normal! If not, any ideas?
