I have a few chickens that have bare bottoms.... I'm not sure if this is normal or not. The one in the pic is a 1 year old Bard Rock that has been featherless on her butt for a couple of months. It dawned on me that this might not be normal. The only thing that I can think of is that they sometimes will sleep in one of the nesting boxes and it does have feces in it. Might the acidity of the feces be "eating" the feathers? She is normal acting in every way. Happy, lays, etc. Is this normal?
