I really need advice. I have 26 hens and a rooster in a large outside run and coop. For months now, all of the hens have had large, red featherless spots on their backs and with some on their chests or wings too. They are healthy otherwise and give us a ton of eggs. I can't find any mites and they are always dust bathing. These areas just look so red and raw.

If the skin is red, that makes me think mite or lice. Sounds inflamed. One rooster is not going to be able to ruff up all 26 hens that badly. Can you take a pic and share ?

I have a red in a coupe with 6 other hens and a Rooster. One of the hens has the same thing but no signs of mites. Will get a pic later.
