Last winter they started to loose their bum feathers, we dusted them for bugs and such.
They went all winter in the snow with naked bums
We had to keep them penned up this summer because they made "tossed Hosta salad" with all my Hosta plants.
I did have hay in their nests, but have changed it to sawdust. Now they are loosing other feathers, I hate to pick them up because they look and feel like something that you buy in the store to put in the oven.....oh these are laying hens and pets.
I guess I'm just wondering if they should have vitamins or something to encourage feather growth.
Or is there anything I can do
Any input would be appreciated.
