Roo with red skin and losing feathers

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi, 



 



Our frizzle roo has always been skiddish and a little crazy. He was picked on by a bigger roo when he was smaller. He had bald spots when he came to us, but they haven't grown back and it has been over 4 months. Also, I noticed that he has a red tail area, neck, and  red lines down his legs. Is this normal or something wrong? Also, whenever he is picked up or scared, he loses 10-20 feathers. Pictures below. Thanks for your help!
