    • Hi, Carol – Sorry to hear you lost your hen! Featherless on the back can be the rooster’s fault especially if there are not enough hens to go around (ideal is 4-8 hens per roo, depending on size of breed and weight of birds). Parasites usually cause long-term misery. They can be difficult for a bird to deal with if there is something else going on, but generally should not be primary cause of death. My guess is something else caused her demise. Check the roo and other birds for external parasites – if one has, they all will have.
