Some of my hens are started to have feather loss on the back of there heads and top on head.
A rooster can be the culprit, lice/mites, feather picking, the beginning of a molt, or any combination of these.
Sounds like the start of a molt. Here's a little reading for you on the subject.
Thanks I looked at them and I don't see any mite or lice and I can't pull the feathers out so I think molting they are all still laying eggs. A few weeks ago I was getting 10 eggs a day out of 35-40 hens for about 2 weeks and now we are back to normal. The weather has been crazy here one min its cooled and the next spring type weather.
