    I was wondering what causes this type of feather loss! They don't have mites and not all of them are like this! I am thinking that it is the rooster doing it, but I want to make sure.

    As you can see not all of them are losing their feathers like a few of them are!

    Yup, if there are no mites then that looks like the roosters doing! Those are just his favorite hen's.
