Chicken Advice Needed
I am worried about Hildred.
She is looking rather ragged as of late and I am not sure why. She has energy, she is eating, and, as far as I can tell, she is still laying.
Her feathers have never been quite right, and she has always had a little "bald spot" on her rear, but it seems to be getting worse. The "bald spot" is much bigger and she has lost a few feathers around her wings. She is also looking a little thin, but she always was a small bird.
All the other ladies appear healthy, happy and plump and i have seen no aggression towards anyone from anyone else.
Is she molting? Is she being picked on by the other ladies when I am not around?
Any advice would be very helpful!
