    Our hens are pecking at our roo's feet also. He's feather footed. We culled him within sight of the hens and he stops bleeding, then at night he goes in the coop to sleep with the hens. The next day he's nailing hens and they eat etc then at some point the girls bloody his feet again. We've been going through this for a week now. Only started separating him from them in the day time for 3 or 4 days. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm not sure if I totally understand your post....perhaps you typed a word that got auto-corrected to 'culled?' I researched a couple old threads that talked about hens pecking other chicken's feet. One suggestion that came up was to apply something called Blue Kote. Might try researching that. Hope it helps.
