Is this a disease?

I noticed some of my pigeons have lost feathers around their necks and some of them have churches around their eyes. I'm attaching pics here.
Can someone tell me if this is a disease and what I should do?
The pigeons seem unaffected otherwise, meaning they're eating and drinking normally.
We are in Fremont, CA 94536.

Have never seen anything like that. Because you live Fremont, you are very close to the greatest vets in the US...Drs Speer and Olsen at Medical Center for Birds in Oakley. They will know what it is. Hope your birds are ok.

They look just like the king pigeons I adopted from California: they were suffering from overcrowding and just about every parasite imaginable before the operation was shut down.
