    Hello,
    One of my 5 chickens has a bald spot at the tail about the diameter of a tennis ball.

    I then separated the feathers going up her back toward her neck and she is bald there also.

    Her skin has black specs which I think are follicles?

    Chickens were born March 1

    I think the other New Hampshire Red looks like she may be starting to do this.

    Others look fine.

    I've never seen any itching, bugs or anything.

    What do you think???
