Hi, I am a newbie chicken rancher with a herd of six I just picked up a month ago. I went to get them and they looked rough and the gal I bought them from said they had a rough ride to her place. When I got them home, they were bald and featherless in many spots. Most all seem to be growing beginner feathers back, but "BaldButt Betty" doesn't seem to be. Can they get pecked so bad they won't grow feathers? She is going to sunburn for sure come summer if not. I was told they were 7 months when I got them. Some day's now I get 2 eggs, others 3 max. Any suggestions?
