What's wrong with my chickens?
Do chickens "moult"? Because some of them have lost feathers. It looks like they lost feathers and are growing them back in patches. It looks terrible.
One Ameraucana hen has it the worst. She had bare skin on her back which I assumed was pulled out by the rooster or by others who peck at her. She is kept away from those chickens now, and her bald spot filled back in, but she has patchy sopts all over, including her head and her beard. So now I'm doubtful that the other chickens pulled her feathers out.
Two Barred Rock hens also have patchy spots with missing feathers and regrowth. They look smaller than the unaffected Barred Rock hen, and maybe I'm mistaken, but they don't seem to eat as much.
The Ameraucana hen seems ill. She just sits there all day on her shelf. I placed food and water next to her, and she is eating and drinking, but she won't leave her spot even though it's nice outside. She has been despondent for a few days, although she's looked sad for a while now.
A Barred Rock rooster and hen, and a leghorn hen are unaffected and seem normal.
