Carbaryl withdrawal time for eggs?

I agree with Ontario Chick. It kind of looks like it might have been rubbed off. Is there somewhere she could be sticking her head into?

U.R.I would be my guess, watch for damp spots on her shoulders from rubbing her eyes

I've checked around for places that she may be rubbing her head, but haven't found anything.

U.R.I.? What is that? As far as I can tell, no damp spots, and no eye rubbing. What I did notice on my spy cam tonight at around roost time was that she was picking at her friend Annie's butt fluff - and Annie didn't seem to mind. I don't know if this means anything, but I made a note anyway. Is it possible that this is some sort of social / boredom feather picking?

Could be, mutual grooming. ;)
Another thing that may be a possibility, I know you feed some delicious extras to your birds, any chance she gets some goodies on her face and neck when she dives in?
It wouldn't take much for somebody finding and picking it off of her, these things tend to be habit forming and it would explain the regular shape.

I think you may be on to something, OC - thanks! I have been feeding them their fermented grains in bowls, so it's very possible that the feed that is stuck up the sides of the bowl gets rubbed onto to her neck, at the front anyway. She's featherless all the way around, but maybe a it's due to a combination of that and mutual grooming. Coincidentally, I have switched to feeding them on plates in the last few days. Hopefully if there is no feed stuck to her, she won't be targeted for cleanup. I'm hoping that by tomorrow there will be enough snow melted away that I can let them out for a few hours. I'm sure they are getting pretty bored with their winter lodging.

you can see mites big time on around their vent and soft fluff around their legs/underside. It will look dirty/grey. Heavy infestation.

I also think shes getting picked.
