    Two of my hens have lost ther butt feathers and there vents have some blood coming out a long with lots of pastiness. They are still laying and acting normal. It started with one and a week after I removed her the second hen lost her butt feather almost over night! What do I do?

    Mites?? That is a commen cause of feather loss, but so is picking. I'm sure others will also offer advice.
