    My buff cochin named Henrietta has lost a lot of feathers on her butt and on her head, too. Where you can see her skin it is very red and its like a crimson. She acts normally and I personally think she has mights but I'm not sure. And if you need I can take a photo.

    if you have a rooster that is from him trying to breed her. if not than that sounds like mites. i would give her a de bath just in case.

    The reason I think its mites is that my leghorn also has just not as red.
