    We've noticed white feathers all around the yard and in the coop for several days but all chickens were home. Today I noticed one of my hens has a bare spot on her back and her tail feathers are shortened. We do not have a rooster. I'm wondering if she's gone from top of the order to the bottom? Any ideas why would this happen? Thanks!
