    Ok so this hen has had this problem for a long time, I think it is because, Boba, our hen wannabe rooster....is doing this to her. Maybe it could be something else? Does anyone have any suggestions? It's bald and red like this all the time, and we DE the[​IMG]m every so often.

    Get rid of Boba or try chicken saddles.

    Well we can't get rid of boba, but we did get a rooster....he just has to get a little bit bigger to be the lead pecking order...

    I kinda figured she was boba's favorite because Kanga,the one balding, won't let me pick her up, she's the only one I have never held..
