    Maybe another bird is pulling out his feathers. Some birds will peck other birds feathers off like peck their crests off ect.

    Could be either one, you can order a chicken saddle from someone specially built for your girl to let her heal. Try www.louisescountrycloset.com if you email they would help you figure something out I'm sure [​IMG]
