    Looks like rooster damage (bare back) on black hen (right side) next to pita pinta.. Maybe you can get a hen apron for her to protect her back and give new feathers a chance to grow in.

    Thanks, you have a keen eye. Sicilian Buttercup - Fiona, Cuccoo Maran - Dharma,Golden Wyandotte - Eva All came from a very nice grower who had about 100 free range pullets. Two of the three had some tail feather damage. They are re growing already. Should be back to normal soon. Cheers, Jeff
