Is the absence of feathers on the heads and backs of hens during the summer and early fall most commonly associated with good or poor layers?

It's associated with a rooster mounting them. I suppose a rooster would mount more frequently a hen that was ovulating more often. So... I guess it would be a sign of a good layer but one who has a painful head and back :).
