I have a 18mo red sex link hen. She started losing feathers a few weeks ago.I thought it was molting. Then she started pulling out her feathers to the point of injuring herself,so I moved her indoors to a cage to care for her wounds. She has been in for about 4-5 days,and has just laid her second egg. I thought molting hens do not lay,so is she a bored broody hen that pecks at herself? Years ago I took in a neglected parakeet that pecked herself bloody.Is this one destined to always do the same? Some pics of the plucked areas which are back,neck,and wings.All were raw and bloody a few days ago.She seems to be behaving herself in the home. I am keeping her inside till her backside heals otherwise the others might peck her open.Just curious what could be going on with her. She pecks at her eggs,so I remove them right away.
