    I have a flock of chickens and the majority of them are 3 years old this spring. We have white leghorn hens and 3 of them are looking scraggly. missing feathers, look thin. They're still energetic and run to people when they see us (guilty of giving them a lot of treats [​IMG]) they're eating and drinking. Should I be concerned?

    Did they molt this last fall?
    What and how exactly are you feeding.
    Too many treats is not a good thing.
