I have 6 chickens. They are all in some state of moulting. I have had them for at least 5 years but I don't recall seeing this before. All of them have some feather loss and a lot of weird reddish scabby things on their faces and combs. It could be scabs from pecking but it is ALL of them. We also had an ant invasion by the coop, but I have been bitten by these ants too and they hurt but didn't leave a mark. Can someone look at these and let me know what they think? Confused. PS all the chickens seem healthy otherwise.
