    We recently rescued a older rooster and he was picked on by the other hens at his old place. They had picked out all his tail feathers. Our chickens want to keep picking his back end and making it bleed. We have them apart and need to know what to do for him. Have seen something on this but can not find it again. Any ideas would help.
