I removed 2 yesterday with a little blood on the vent. I don't think there
are any cannibals. The pecking only starts after the bleed. I have been
watching very careful at laying time. I have eliminated all feed except the
layer, and oyster shell. There are 3 roosters in the pen, 1 frizzle...
I have about 30 hens. They have a huge pen. I don't seem to have any aggressive chickens till the bleeding
starts. I think the Delaware is going to make it, we got her out in time. The feed is a name brand and I have
been using it from the start.
Sometimes there is stuff hanging out. Other times the whole area is open and they
will be dripping blood every where. Thats when the other hens start pecking and
pulling. Sometimes it looks like the keel bone is protruding out. One that is alive
lost all her reproductive organs, she is a pet.
I don't think they are too fat. It seems to be moving thru type of
chicken first the sexlinks, then the jerseys and now delawares.
we had a yellow light in the cold weather. 2 lbs of scratch a day
2 lbs pellets and 2 lbs starter with oyster shell. plenty of water
they have a five gallon waterer.
I need help!!! I have had 3 sexlinks, 2 black jerseys, and 1 delaware prolapse when laying. The other
chickens keep pecking at the blood till they kill the hen. I have been able to save 2 by catching them
at the time of the prolapse. Please help.
I am still feeding starter, laying...
