A while back I posted about my hen who's being picked on (her coop companions plucked all the feathers off her head). The plucked hen has found a way to protect herself...during the daylight hours she uses the food bucket as armor. She hops into it as soon as the sun comes up. It seems to have helped since feathers are beginning to sprout up on her head. The problem with her solution is she poops in the food container and that's got to be adding to the other hens annoyance with her. I could put a top on the container so she can't get into it, but then where will she hide? So...I'm wondering if any of you crafty types can design my hen a hat or helmut to protect her from her plucking mates. I welcome your ideas (and designs).
