    Relaxing with my Buns
    Sometimes it takes time for the feathers to grow back.
    I have a hen that is always bald on her back(Except in the winter lol)
    She could have mites
    You can put raw honey on her back to see if the feathers will grow back.
    Raw honey works for wounds and healing the skin, so maybe it will work. Give it a try
