For some time now I've had a Co-Op Red that is in terrible shape, she's lost feathers on her back and wings, her neck and she's bald. At first I suspected my roo was being rough so I put a saddle on her thinking her feathers would grow in - they haven't. Now other hens are showing signs of rough feathers on there backs, near their tails and some have bald heads. They will be a year old the latter part of this month and have been laying consistently between 12 - sometimes 13 or 14 eggs a day. We've always had a light on in the coop for them during the winter but I wonder if that has screwed up their natural molt cycle. Its soon to be the middle of March and it looks like they are starting to molt, but is this their normal time to molt? They are getting layers feed and I give them a treat of rice, lettuce, eggs, etc daily. I put AC vinegar in their water and keep their coop clean. I haven't noticed feathers in the coop but from their behavior, they are eating the feathers. If this is a molt, how do I help them? They are still laying. Do I turn off the light? Change their food? What?? Thank you for any advice.
