In the Brooder
- Jul 14, 2016
Hey everyone! I just wanted to introduce myself, and start off with a question I am a homeschooling, city mama who recently moved to an acre and we started our adventure of chicken parenting. We had a flock of 12 killed by a mink around 5 months old, and our new flock of 16 is a year old TODAY! Recently our hens have had big bald spots on their backs... Does anyone know what could be causing this? We have one rooster with all of our hens. One of them just hatched chicks about 2 weeks ago and she is one of the healthiest looking ones right now! We are getting about 12-14 eggs a day so I think they are healthy. I just don't know what's up with the looks!
