I have 4 hens, my bluebelle is bald all over her chest right under her tummy and round her vent area (where she is also very pooey), essentially she has just a long bald patch from chest to bum! It is very very red and inflamed however i cannot find mites or lice on any of the chickens or in the coop! I'm thinking maybe she'd picking her own feathers as we never see any others picking at her, we are giving her lots of extra protein yoghurt, sultanas, scrambled egg (i know it seems just so wrong but it apparently helps). If any of you have any other ideas what this might be it'd be a massive help because although she seems fine in herself, eating well, still laying etc it looks so sore and it's been ongoing and getting worse for over 2 months. Any suggests on how to just soothe the soreness would be appreciated toothanks!
