I have 6 hens, and notices that one of the white leghorn hens was jumping on the back of the red rock hen. My husband said he's seen her do the same thing. At the same time however, I've noticed that all 6 of my hens have lost their feathers around their butt area and the skin in reddened, I've posted in another forum for this, and have thoroughly cleaned out the coop and run, applied GardStar dust to their fannies every 3rd day, alternating with Seven Dust, and DE. They also had some diarrhea, or so I think, because I've noticed poop around their vent areas as well as dirty eggs. The eggs are becoming somewhat cleaner, however their skin still looks reddened and irritated. Could this be a pecking situation? I did not see any lice, or mites on the girls, but really think that it had to have been a bug infestation even though we are diligent with cleaning the coop and run every 3rd day. I've also changed their roosting tray from shavings to PDZ and now use a litter scooper to clean out the poop, and apply DE, and Seven dust regularly. Anyway, not sure about the hens jumping on each others back.
