Hiya, we have a pair of chickens that we keep in the garden and one of them is getting bald patches on each side of her head. This has been quite progressive, but it is getting quite a concern now. We always check and treat them for mites and it doesn't appear to be that. They are out of their coop and given full access to the garden for atleast 9 hours each day, unless there is no one home, so I don't think they are getting bored or stressed?
If anyone could help or has any idea what could be going on, i'd appreciate any feedback.







Thanks!
Jodie

Chicken curses are the worst. Well wait, cat swearing is actually worse than that, but chicken curses are still pretty bad.
