My hens seem to sheding skin, its all around were they roost and beside their droppings! any1 know what this is or is it something to worry about??
Skin or keratin feather sheaths? Dropping either is not particularly abnormal, but I think you are seeing the keratin sheaths. They shed that all the time.
If it looks like a bad case of dandruff, it's probably feather sheaths. It is molting season and they'll be dandruffy for the duration.
Yea i think it could be the feather sheaths, I take it its nothing to worry 2 much about?? thanks for the replies
