We are fairly new to the chicken world so we're still Leary a lot. How do I know if I have mites or something else or if my chickens are pecking each other? The other hens look fine and the two with feathers missing act fine and are still laying eggs.

Looks like pecking or bite. This is a nasty question but do you have rats? Mostly they want eggs but I have seen instances where they will attack chickens when roosting or in nests to get the eggs.
