I brought home a sad looking hen today. About 1 1/2 yrs. old - every color you can think of on...what's left...of her feathers. Somebody had too many roos.... She has bald patches on her neck, back, about 1/2 - 1 inch of tail feathers left and almost bald wings. I first saw her about a week ago - just removed from that situation and she actually looks 100x better now, but..oh! I seriously considered naming her Fugly! My DH was thrilled when I called to say a new chicken was on it's way home. He shook his head and said he was glad I brought her when he saw her. So.....what time frame am I looking at (ballpark) for new feathers? Other than fresh air, sunshine, good diet, no roos kicking her butt......anything in particular to offer? She's good weight (judging by feel), just half bald. When she spreads her wings, she looks like she just came out of the freezer! I swear though - I am focused on "the chicken that will be" and I do believe that she will look beautiful! She does seem to have a very sweet and calm personality already - for me - the most important part. No idea what breed(s). She may or may not even have a crest - can't tell from her kinda bald head..... She is definitely Bantam sized and even kinda little for a Banty. Oh - and she's been laying, almost daily, 1/2 lg size eggs - bless her heart..... Suggestions for bald chicken rehab. - most welcome!! Thanks!
