I think so. It looks more like plucked chickens than sick chickens.
I don't know what to do about it or I would do it with my chickens. Taking the really mean rooster out of the flock has helped, but there are still two birds that have some plucked areas.
I would never advocated doing it, but I do see why commercial egg growers use individual cages for their hens. I can't, however, see why they put them in tiny cages. I suspect that a somewhat plucked chicken is happier than a caged chicken. Then again, I may be wrong.
