I've got an assorted variety of beautiful ladies - ten in all. This one, Maude, just became an aggressive butt feather plucker. She eats every single feather she plucks. Now two of the ladies have bare butts. We've had snow on the ground and very cold nighttime temperatures for about ten days now, and this is a first for the girls. Heat lamps at night and warm oatmeal for breakfast to help with that. They get organic layer feed (i just changed brands.) They still free-range for 3-4 hours during the day on whatever ground they can find with no snow (acre of land.) So from what I've read on these wonderful forums, I can/should supplement their feed with protein like scrambled eggs w/shells, put some stuff on the bare butts, hang food to fight boredom. Question is, what should I do first? And since I know exactly who it is, should I remove her from the flock (have no idea how to do that)? Maybe not let her free-range with the others? Thanks for any suggestions! And BTW, I feel VERY lucky to be getting 4-6 eggs a day!
