My broody hen is bald. The feather plucker culprit has been identified. She sits and plucks the feathers out of the broody as she sits on her eggs. I've discovered she also follows the other hens into the coop, when they lay their eggs and does it to them too. Ha anyone had experience of this. The usual remedies drew a blank. They are completely free range, there is no excuse of boredom, lack of protein or any of the usual reasons for this behaviour.
