    Sounds like they could be overcrowded or bored. Or as the other person suggested, if you have a roo, he will leave this "worn" section on your hen's backs just in front of the tail area.

    Stress can also cause pecking. Can you give us some more details so we can help? How many birds, age of birds, coop size, what do they eat? Does their water freeze daily? If so, how often is it replaced? Do they get outside to free range?

    It does not sound like a bug problem from what you're describing. I wouldn't recommend using seven again until we have more info.
