    Hi,
    I've had my 13 RIR and one Roo for over a year now - such a blessing and so many eggs. The last four months they have lost the feathers on their backs and bottoms - took to the vet and he said they were molting and no mites or insects. Some are now growing their feathers back slowly, but as I fed today one of my hens was squatting, moving slow, tail was down and she is shaking her head. Does anyone have a clue what is wrong with her? They are so precious and loving. Thank you so much!
    Cristy
