loss of feather and a red tummy

Recommended Posts



I have two chickens and one of then has lost her feathers between her legs on her under belly, i have been reading about red mites and moulting. As only one has lost any I'm assuming that she is moulting , is it normal for her belly to go red when this happens ?


Any cooments / suggestion would be a great help.


Thank you Neil

just giving my three a check over tonight, and they all have lost a little on the front of the neck, and under there tummys, but arent red. So am also assuming its their 1st moult. They are quite healthy otherwise. Its a bit worrying though the 1st time isnt it.
