Mites, Pecking or Something Else?

I have attached a couple pictures of my salmon faverolle. She has missing neck and butt feathers. They’ve been missing since February but it’s recently gotten worse and she stopped laying. She eats fine and acts normal. Is this mites/lice, pecking or what? I know she self pecks her neck on occasion but it’s getting out of control. Any advice would be great. Thanks.

How big is their coop and run for how many birds? Diet?
7 birds. Run is 90 square feet. Coop is 6x6 by four feet tall with a roost. I let them free range in the afternoons and I don’t often see them peck each other. All my chickens but one are missing their butt feathers. All the chickens lay normally except this salmon faverolle.
