    I have a barred rock that has lost all her feathers in tne neck area too. I wouldn't think they would moult this time of year, I was thinking that %$#@ rooster is doing it to her but all the others are fine. I hope we can get an answer soon.

    Well, I have two roosters, and neither one seems to be interested in her...they like the RIR's [​IMG]

    I am rehoming the two roosters today, as I'm not supposed to have roosters..but I really don't think it's them.
