Our year old Cochin has some feather loss and bumps on her tail.
Curious if anyone might know what this is? Thanks!!

Check her really well for lice/mites while you're at it.
I see broken feather shafts and a little evidence of feather picking. Observe your flock to see if the others are picking at her.
One bump (red circle) looks like a feather cyst or ingrown feather follicle, you may want to check that out to see if there's an embedded feather.
Red Arrow is oil gland which looks normal.
