So I wanted to add two more hens to my flock. I sent hubby to a local small farm (advertised on craigslist) for 2 Ameraucanas (knowing full well they were probably just easter eggers). Anyway, he brought home the birds (which were supposed to be hatched April 2/3). Both seem kind of listless. And they both look scraggly on their backs, right above their tail feathers, as if their feathers were plucked or pulled out! What is this? Is it normal? Is it mites? They don't seem to be sneezing and their eyes look clear, but I am keeping them separate from the rest of my birds for now.
