    This is the only chicken that has this going on, can anyone tell us what is going on with her. Is she molting?

    I did figure that they were new feathers growing in but I guess we didn't realize what was causing her to loose them.

    does she mate with a roo? that would rip out feathers. If not, just molting

    Thanks for the info I still feel really dumb about things in the chicken world even though we have had them for 2 years. New things keep popping up for us. She is 2 years old and we have never seen this before.
