Rhode Island Red, Meyer Hatchery, 2014 flock ×6 (Clara, Martha, Rose, Donna, Amy, Sarah Jane). Excellent layers. Culled Martha because of bumblefoot. 3 of the 5 left picked their backs bald & were that way for probably 9 months. Had to use saddles to protect them. When they moulted @ 18 months, their feathers finally grew back in.
