Hello everyone! My favorite chicken in the world is Ebony, a Cochin silkie cross. Ebony has the most beautiful, soft, black feathers. She is a house chicken. But recently, I've noticed something. Her feathers are looking unhealthy. They are getting scraggly. It started a little while ago, and is getting worse. 3 years ago we had a different house chicken that had this same problem, but his was terrible, all his feathers looked awful and messed-up. I really don't want this to happen to Ebony! I've been getting her outside as much as possible because I don't want her gorgeous feathers to be ruined. Is there anything I can do besides take her outside? Are there any vitamins that support healthy feathers? Ebony is so gorgeous and I want her to stay that way. I would greatly appreciate any answers/advice anyone could give me, thanks! This pic was taken over the summer.... her feathers don't look this good anymore.
