Hi everyone I’ve posted on here before but not for sometime. A few months ago two of our hens suffered with scaly leg mite. I’m pleased to say after some treatment it has cleared up (from what we can gather). The problem we now have is two of our hens are a) are unable to lay but both go through the rituals of it and b) appear to be self plucking feathers around the front of their necks, bellies and around their bottoms. Any thoughts? It is also strange how two of our hens have suffered from all these symptoms and ailments and not the third who continues to lay daily.
