Have you noticed any pecking or picking at each other (more than normal, I mean)? If not, then they are probably moulting. Mine have been for a while now, just starting to grow new ones finally...they looked kinda pitiful!
if they're pecking at eachother, it could be a calcium deficiency... but if they're just going thru a bad molt... that's a tough one... i think it's their diet... what are you feeding them...? how much calcium and protein...?
em...... i feed them rolled barley and layers mash...... and i also let them out most of the day so they gets lots of bugs, grass grit and all !
