    Hi everyone! I'm kind of new to having backyard chickens and am having issues with feather loss. We live in Ajo, AZ! I'm having fun with chickens but also need advice!

    Hello and Welcome [​IMG] .

    How old are your chickens? If they are not having any symptoms other than feather loss it could just be normal molting.

    If they are molting, added protein will help them re-feather and feel better. Welcome to the Backyard chicken flock, glad you joined us.
