Im beside myself as to what to do with my hens. Some of them had lost their tail feathers. Some of them were losing feathers elsewhere. Then theres today, more below. Heres an account as to the posting guidelines: I have 20 hens (8 BOs, 5 RIRs, 3 SLWs, 2 DB, 2 BR, and 1 JG)and 1 BR Roo. They are just about 8 months old. Some hens are heavier than others. Some feel nice and big, some feel lighter. For about a month or so(maybe a little longer) Ive noticed the feathers around the base of their tails slowly decreasing, looking broken, etc. I was under the assumption they were molting. Everybody seems to be eating, drinking, and laying fine. Here are some photos of just in front of their tails on their backs Now this however is what shocked me. Ive been away for a couple of days and I come back to this: All of my five road island reds are bleeding out the vent. Im just traumatized. Ive tried to find out what the problem is by reading etc, but I cant. Theyre really nice birds and it kills me to see them and the others with their feathers like they are. I hope somebody can maybe help.
