    I read old posts on this...an article from Kansas U also but it doesnt add up. It isnt fall... so they arent molting, they have an awesome diet, I dont find evidence of picking or mites...ONLY my Marans are looking super mangy in the tail feather department. One has had most her tail missing for months and now the other 3 are loosing then pretty fast.
    Any further ideas?
