Yup, she could be doing it, so could the other chickens. If you can catch him, look him over carefully for any signs of parasites or damage. Make sure he's got someplace to take a nice dust bath. You might consider adding some clean wood ashes and/or insecticidal Diatamacious earth to the spot. Gerbil

He could be Molting (Its the way chikens shed). Rooster will not mate and hens will not lay when molting
