    Looks like a hen that has been over mated or feather picked.

    Thanks for the info. All I know about the inherited chickens is they are approx. 5 to 6 months old. She said she got them in April or May. I don't think they were well cared for. Small coop no free ranging. I can't wait to see how they blossom with proper nutrition :). Is there anything besides the common sense stuff like fresh food water free range clean coop that I can do to speed up the process ?
    Thanks agian for all the info. I also recieved two black australorps from her but they are still shy. I've only had them a couple days. Ill have to post pics of them as soon as I can get good ones !

    Good luck with rehabilitating your birds. Given space, adequate food and water, and the chance to free range, they should blossom. You might add some black oil sunflower seeds and some high protein cat food to their diets as 'treats'.
