I've posted about this before...but I'll try again... My year old Ameracauna hen has no feathers around her vent, her underside is bare and under her wings is bare as well. She's starting to lose feathers at the base of her neck. She's been like this for 4-5 months. She acts healthy. She eats and drinks and acts like a normal chicken. (She is also missing a lot on her back from the roo, a saddle has helped that part at least) I cannot find ANY bug ANYWHERE on ANY of my birds or in the coop/nesting boxes. This week I'm starting a higher protein diet to see if that does anything. I'm not thinking this is a molt because it's been so long. I just want her to have all of her feathers by winter. Some of my other birds are losing feathers at the base of their necks, but none are as bad as her. It seems to be here and the larger breed birds. My bantams are all normal. Any advice would be great.
