In July I introduced three Eastereggers to our flock, plus an older hen no longer laying to give her a home. The three Eastereggers had been ravaged by a rooster and were in really bad shape. I successfully managed to help the regrowth of feathers on two of them by adding extra protein to their diet, using neosporin, and Bluekote. The third one, however, hasn't grown her feathers back (pin feahers do appear on her back but don't seem to grow. Her "shoulders" are still red raw. I have been trying Peck no More, but to no avail. I am concerned about winter temperatures if I can't get her 'feathered'again before the colder temps really set in. A saddle doesn't cover her "shoulders". The hen which came with them was accepted very quickly, but it's my gentle Eastereggers which are always picked on, particularly by this one. I'm seriously considering eliminating her, because she can be really nasty. My Speckled Sussex does her share of pecking too. She is the head honcho, by the way. I lost my three beautiful Wyandottes to respiratory disease, (they were medicated, nursed and loved by the way, but I wasn't able to save them) and one to a racoon, so now am down to two of the original flock, which consists of an Ameracauna and Speckled Sussex. Point here being that my 5X4 coop was fine in winter when everyone got along. Now I'm worried that it won't be big enough. They have an approx 8x8 covered veranda and a 20' run. They also free range in good weather. Advice greatly appreciated.
