chickens missing feathers

For over 2 months now one of my Dominique hens has been missing some feathers. I believe that she molted but it is like she has not recovered from it.
I wonder if she could have mites?

RE: chickens missing feathers

where on her body is she missing feathers? her back? if you have a rooster, and that hen is his favorite mate, she could be losing back feathers from being favored in the mating department if you know what i mean.

if its all over her body it could be mites, worms, etc.

if its changed, she probably is still can take longer than 2 months for some hens to finish.

RE: chickens missing feathers

Is she growing in any new pinfeathers? Where are the missing feathers? Is she acting sick at all?
