Greetings fellow chicken lovers, I have a total of 5 Easter Eggers, and they are losing feathers and not regenerating them. I talked to most people and they ay it is just part of their molting period, but that only last for months at max time. Their feather loss started exactly one year ago and it has been getting worse by the month. I have treated them for chicken mites and other feather loss causing parasites, but it is still the same thing. I am not sure how I should feed them ratio wise. right now I am doing 50% scratch and 50% laying crumble. I read somewhere that laying crumble is high in protein and should help provoke feather growth. It could have been stress, but I fixed that problem by moving them into a much larger coop yesterday and they are already happier. I really don't know what to do. These are the places where the feathers are gone or going: 1. vent area 2. back 3.shoulder of the wings 4. belly/ neck these areas except for the shoulders and neck are red and irritating looking. I beg you to help me and my flock.
