One of my Girls (an easter egger) is having a horrible time with her pin feathers. Every day I seem to see fresh blood coming from a new one, I don’t see any of the other girls picking on her any extra, so I’m concerned that she has poor quality feathers, or that she’s picking herself. I know that chickens are tender during a molt, so I hate to trap and treat her, but I feel leaving this issue alone isn’t good either. None of the others girls molting are having this issue. It also seems the sheaths are slow to come off? Anyone else deal with this or heard of this?
