    Hi Again,

    Here is my Rhode Island about 2.5 years old, losing some feathers and no egg production since cooler weather. Please see pictures below. The other chickens beat up on her as well so any tricks you have to keep others from pulling out feathers are welcome. The first picture shows her area around the eyes and comb and the second her underbelly.

    Thank YOU!

    I've seen heads like that when mine had lice, so double check her for that

    Her belly almost looks like she's been broody [​IMG]
