    Ok, i kknow i don't need any more, but....i just had to look, they had buff cochins.... anyway, i am looking at them as i always do to see if all of them are healthy, and this little pullet catches my eye....looks like somebody just stripped her feathers, so i just couldn't leave her to be completely bald....

    what is the best way to encourage feather growth, i know with my pet birds to give them suppltments, should i just keep her isolated and fed and watered?

    Gamebird starter is great for feathering in hard starters. Using poly-vi-sol baby vitamins (no iron kind) for a week or so should help with any deficiencies. Good luck with the wee ugly!

    My TSC rescued duckling is soooo huge! He's hilarious. I also couldn't just let him die, so he came home. Wow he's messy but I'm NOT sorry. He'll move to someone else with ducks but now I want a pond....
