    Three of my hens have this on their necks and so far, I have bathed them with baby shampoo, used Garden & Poultry Dust, DE in the coop, too and finally, in case it is pecking, used PICK-NO-MORE Cover Up Lotion which stinks. I have them now on Feather Fixer, also. These patches are getting larger. What am I doing wrong or what do I need to do? Someone please help! Here is a picture of my Elvira, poor thing. She has stopped laying as of 2 weeks now. I really hope someone can advise me . . .[​IMG]

    Do you have a rooster? Sometimes a roo will make and nip the hens neck when trying to mate with the hen.

    No rooster. Have 5 hens and 3 of them have this.

    Hmmm...could be a disease or something with mites/fleas.
