This is driving me absolutely insane. I was hoping to start showing my Wheaten Ameraucanas but I have one hen who is a beard picker. I recently re homed all my adult birds but 1 (wheaten Ameraucana) hen then I acquired a new breeding quad of Wheatens. It’s not a nutrition issue, I know how it all started... the beard picking was started after a couple hens started egg eating which was started by a blue jay that was caught red handed pecking open the eggs. Egg eaters are gone and I kept one of my older Ameraucanas (who is really like to keep one more season) who is relentless with the beard picking! How can I get her to stop? I’m afraid she is going to teach my new hens to do it too.
