    So while administering the second followup dose of Safeguard deworming, I noticed my BLR Wyandotte hen Lola appears to have bloody quills, like the tops of some of the shafts are bleeding then clotting. She is the one I suspect of having the worms initially, could it be related or is something else amiss?? If needed I will attempt pics tomorrow.

    Bleeding pin feathers are generally the result of pecking from flock mates.

    Thanks, I'll keep an eye out then. Whoda thunk Faverolles could be bullies...
