I have a Australorp hen who is losing feathers like crazy, they fall out at the lightest touch and her skin is rough and dry. This is no molting, and I doubt stress, because she is free range, hardly any roos, and very good feed...Any ideas?

My bet she's begining to molt..Thats how it starts..Depluming mites dont cause feather loss themselfs..The irritation from the mites causes the bird to pull and peck i'ts own feathers
