Hello is there anyone who has OMLET coops and housing near Croydon, Surrey? We'd like to set up a chicken coop and run at our school and wondered if there is one who has one we can come and see in action (COVID safe of course), thank you

one of our orpington's bottom is bald - it doesn't hurt her and she's the only one out of 6 and a rooster who all share a house with it, so I don't think it's mites or lice. any ideas? she is laying fine and seems very happy. thanks
