I've been really watching my hens since there are several missing feathers on their backs. I'm thinking this maybe could be from the rooster. In my daily surveillance of my girls i noticed one had a red spot on her butt. I picked her up to examine her closer and could see red ares from her butt and across her belly. (i have attached pics) Any idea what could have caused this? I watched her for awhile and she acts totally normal. When i came back out to get a picture of her i had to wait because she was laying an egg. I watched her lay the egg, everything normal, she sat contentedly for a little while, moving her egg around and sitting on it. I added pics of what her belly looks like. Please anyone have any ideas? Also of some pics of the hens backs to see if anyone has an idea there as well.
