Has he moulted? It may grow back in in a month or two!

It is possible that he has moulted it out, catch him and have a look at his rump see if you can see any new feathers coming through! :&>

count your eggs, maybe he's turning into a girl - we had a few posts lately that chickens can do that. Maybe it's one of the fertility issues mentioned as well...I wish one of mine would but don't have much hope ;D
or check for lice? :&>
