0.5% is not very much calcium at all. 3-4% is the amount in a typical layer ration. I wouldn't be concerned at all.

No. This is most likely feather picking. Possibly rooster wear due to overmating, but that's a very unusual pattern for rooster wear. You need to determine which birds are doing the picking, separate them, and apply Pick-No-More or a similar anti-picking solution to the afflicted birds. You should also examine your flock's diet, environment, and coop, as protein deficiency, stress, and overcrowding are the three most common causes of feather picking.
