    Read most of the posts about feather loss . Should I consider mites if the rooster looks like he is having some possible feather loss? What is DE? I'm going to make saddles for the hens. One rooster for 22 hens and he still has made a lot of them bare on the back side. We have several hens bald near the vent - is this mites?
