    Here is a chicken we have that is much better looking feather wise as our others. What breed is this one?

    Hens sitting on eggs, look at thier backs, why are they all missing feathers on their backs. What is causing that. The only chicken who doesnt have the missing feathers was in the previous picture.

    This is the make-shift baby chicken coop until they get big enough to hang with the older ones. Not pretty at all but serves its purpose!

    What a nice little "farm". Aren't you lucky to have all that room!! I see you have roosters- my guess is the feather loss if from the roo doing his thing... Everything looks great and your daughters are adorable. Enjoy!!

    [​IMG] Awww they're adorable, esp the "best for last"! I believe the reason your hens don't have any feathers on their back is your roosters are pulling them out when they mate. You can purchase "chicken saddles" a number of people on byc make them. They will protect your hens back from the roos. Beautiful flock btw. [​IMG]
