    Ok so last winter one of my boys got rough with 2 of the gals and their feather never grew back. Its the group of feathers right before the tail starts. ex: the RIR have a "hump" its that, that doesn't have feathers.

    What can be done about it!!!

    You can try to force a molt as these feathers will not come back until they molt.. I have a Aussie that is that way and the poor thing gets a sunburn on her lil butt... You may try searching :Forced Molt" in the search feature...
