I'm going Friday to pick up another BBL pullet and a rooster, so she won't be lonely.... I went and bought a little chicken coop with a small run, just for her, because she gets picked on by the others... she's my sweety, and likes being held. Question: Does anybody trim their head feathers to help them see??
This pic is of Nu-Pelly's little house and yard (for now)... She's inside, while my curious little biddies are checking it out.
I see you already got an answer, but wanted to ad to be sure: it is safe to trim hens. I do it all the time. But be careful with roosters, as some -not all- have blood feathers. If he can move his crest (I have several that can, it's kinda creepy...) do not trim as it could hurt him. Being a hen she'll be fine though :-)Edited by MadamPoofyBrow - 10/22/15 at 6:38am
