    My hen CONSTANTLY has a bare bum.. Her bottom also stays swollen a little. There is no egg there or fluid nothing. Been treated for worms, lice, and mites.. But whatever we do, her bottom stays bare..

    Oh boy. I thought mine has some sort of mites. We have the same problem, I don't want to worry you, but one of ours which was like that died last night. We may be taking the body to the vet later on so if I do, I will give you some info.

    Thank you! My hen has been like this for a good while. She eats, drinks, and lays just fine.. But she constantly has a larger behind and constantly bare. No egg stuck nor fluid

    Also when you touch, pet, or handle her. Then a bunch of feathers just fall off of her. However I know it's not molting
