    [​IMG] We have had chickens for about a year and are up to about 100. I have what might be a silly question but we have several chickens who have been over mated and although the roos have been gone for over a month, the girls feathers have not grown back. Can they sunburn now that the weather is warmer?

    I have one hen like that too, she just loves to hang out with the roos.
