Apparently blue jays are one species in which total loss of head feathers during molting is fairly common; I've never seen it myself though; thanks for posting.

Thanks Everyone, This morning I have two completely featherless and one 1/4 of the way back to normal all sitting together but I was not able to get the shot, to bad because I have not seen them in a group like that before. bummer
