We have a RIR that's a little over a year who has taken on a very scruffy almost mangy look. She seems to be healthy, very active, just not very attractive. A couple of our other hens (not RIR) have some of it going on, but not nearly as bad.

At first I thought it was molting, and that could be what it is, but it's been going on for a while now.

Any suggestions?

Some chickens molt faster than others. Some lose a few feathers at a time and look scruffy forever, others loose a lot at once and it gets over with pretty fast.
