I have 4 large hens. All 4 of them were laying until about a week ago. Then, they all stopped. They have free range of oyster shell and eat layer mash, vegetables and fresh fruit. They all started sneezing fo two days ago I put them on tetramyacin (sp?) and they seem to be doing better. I also have noticed that two of the 4 hens have lost the feathers from the tip of their tail to the back of their neck. It is only two and doesn't look like a molt to me. I bought some tea tree oil , mixed it with water, and have been spraying it on their back daily for about 5 days. I do not see any improvement with this solution. I am so new to this and any advice you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time.
