In the Brooder
- Feb 26, 2011
My chickens have been picking on each other lately. I have many breeds, but I have several strains of Leghorn, Barred Rocks, Red and Black Sex-links, Rhode Island Red, and Americaunas. Some have been picked down to several inches of feathers gone in about 2-3 inch areas on their backs, and a little bit on their breasts. I had had a problem with mites a few months ago, but Im pretty sure I got rid of those. Do you have any suggestions or remedies for the picking? Also the coop is 8x8', with a very large run. I have 17 hens and 1 rooster. Thank you!!
