So frustrated! I have two hens that are getting picked on, seemingly out of nowhere.
I have been using pick no more the last 2 days I think its helping.
However, one is missing more tail feathers and they got a bleeder.
She just finish molting and now is getting picked on, while applying the "pick no more" tonight I noticed she has developed a sneeze. I am assuming it's stress. the other is not sneezing. There is no other sign of illness aside from sneezing and its a very clear watery fluid with some dirt in it...maybe too much dust?
I did just recently clean the coop and put in new pine shavings.
I put poultry drench at that time in the water as well as some vetRX when I did the deep clean. I was making sure i did not have mites.
I have 1 large dog crate, but 2 hens that should be separated so they can heal.... AAAAAHHHHH
I also have given them straw for the first time today and put treats in it hoping to keep them entertained so there would be less bullying. Friday I have the day off so I can babysit them and watch what is happening more.
Any suggestions? sigh!
oh they are the only two that are tan/gold in color the others are darker colors, one Brown leghorn, a SLW, SLpolish, Black sexlink, barred rock. the 2 that are getting picked on are easter eggers.
Both are laying daily....
