I have four hens and one rooster who keeps pulling the feathers out of the backs of three of the girls in his "excitement"... I've tried making saddles for the hens but all of them flapped it off within a day (and, it was a hassle putting them on to begin with)! Can I cut the roo's toenails? How far up can I cut without drawing blood? Does anybody have any other suggestions for this problem. Thanks .... First time poster but long time peruser!
