    n, but all signs point to it being a hen though I don't believe she actually laid frequently just rode the coat tails of those that did [​IMG])
    However, today I noticed she was missing a significant amount of feathers on her neck. Then watched her pluck some out.. there is no new growth.
    When bring let out to free range she immediately went to hide in the bushes, did not stay with the flock as they normally do. And when I was in the run was doing anything she could to get away from me including trying to stick her entire body through fencing there was no feasible way she'd get through. She'd also lay down when ever she'd have a chance.

    I'm curious is this just early molting, or mites or a sickness I need to worry about and get her quarantined from the other chickens?
