Feather loss

Hello. I have six city hens, and they molted as normal in the autumn, but now two of them have lost large numbers of feathers. One has a completely bare neck and the other a large bald spot in the hollow behind the neck. I've looked for mites/lice by checking their faces (where I saw them the last time we had them) but didn't see any. What could be the cause of this?

I have a video showing the feather loss, but I had trouble uploading it.

One of them molted with the others and never grew back her feathers, the other molted, regrew, and now is losing them again. I tried to get pictures but my camera can't take a fast enough exposure to stop them from being so blurry that you can't see anything. My chickens like to move :)

As I said, I took a video, but I'm having trouble uploading it. I tried using photobucket, but it wouldn't work, so I'll try a different hosting site.
