Hello, I have 4 chickens in my back garden for nearly 2 years now. Thankfully without a days illness or bug, but lately i have noticed little brown hen (cluckers) has lost the feathers from the top of her head, she walks raising her legs right up which has rubbed the feathers off her breast, she looks quite unhappy, always with her friends and a very tame chick she now eats away from others and seems a loner. Her appertite is normal, is still laying lovely eggs, vent clean, comb pink and healthy. i have cheaked for lice and injury but nothing !!!!. Something is wrong though i can tell. Any ideas very welcome.
