    my one hen has a bald spot near her tail. we have only three road island reds and a large coop. I noticed yesterday and the other two were pecking at her,
    She is a little smaller than the other two but I don't think that this is the reason? we are concerned.
    Could someone give some advice please

    She might just be molting. Or it might be because of the other chickens pecking her.
