    i have 6 production reds and three leghorns. the leghorns are missing feathers on their wings. the reds are not. doesnt seem to be parasites. they are cooped at night but free range during the day most of the time.

    Do you have a rooster? Some of my more popular ladies have feather loss in their wings from the boys standing on them for leverage during their...lovemaking... Lol :rolleyes:
