How can I help my bald chicken?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

A few of my hens are missing feathers on the top of their heads.  I believe this is from my rooster mating with them.  Is there a way to help their feathers grow back?

The feathers won't grow back until a fall molt. Your rooster sounds like he's too much for your hens.

Only a few of my hens are missing feathers on their heads, I think they are his favorites.  Is there anything I can do to discourage him grabbing on their feathers?

Unfortunately not, it's a part of mating.
