    Hi all,

    Still kind of new to this chicken rearing thing- I have 2 girls: greedy guts and clever girl.

    My girls have recently starting to lose feathers on their necks, just wanted to check if it is normal moulting or if it is mites/lice issue? When I first noticed this on Greedy Guts, I thought it was mites so gave her a full dusting of DE. Now I've notices Clever Girl has it too?

    It is Autumn (fall) here in Sydney Australia so could it be just moulting?
