In the Brooder
- Jul 14, 2014
A guy gave me 7 barred rock layers. When I got them home, I noticed that three of them had no feathers around the vent area and two had no feathers on their back just above the tail and the vent area, about a 2 to 3" diameter area. Of course, I isolated them from my own chickens, but am concerned. Doesn't look like molt. Do lice and/or worms cause this? Thanks for any info.
