What is going on?! Very concerned for my hens...

While I am familiar with the outlook of our hens' when they are molting, I don't recall having seen this before, which I happen to notice on two of our Polish hens-- both have it in the same area. I have not a clue as to what happened! Can someone help in identifying if this is some kind of disease or just part of molting? Thank you so much!

Mites are a possibility as is feather picking. To me, it looks like a rooster has been over treading your hen(s.) I recommend purchasing chicken saddles for your hens.
