    So one of my OEG roos has a bald spot on his head. He's had it for WEEKS now, and instead of new feathers coming in, it seems like its getting bigger with him....anyone seen anything like this?

    Quote:That was my original thought, BUT this is by FAR the most dominant Roo (or chicken in general) in the whole group....so I dont think its pecking....
