I have a hen who's missing most of her back feathers. I think it's mostly from a rough roo and a grump alpha hen, but the roo is gone now (mmmmm chicken soup!) and her feathers don't seem to be growing back. I haven't seen the alpha hen peck at her lately either. I didn't apron her sooner, because except for missing feathers, there was no other damage. Her skin looks just fine! I figured they'd all be going into moult soon and her feathers would return then. But I noticed the other day a bit up by her tail is a touch sun darkened. Now she's gone broody and has been pretty much left alone by the other hens. Since she's cooped herself up, she's not getting much sun. And she's loosing feathers on her chest, just like a good broody. Should I apron her? Or should I just wait until she decides she's not broody any more and see how her feathers grow back on their own?
