    I've one cockeral named George, - the horde is all about six/seven weeks- that's getting tattered looking, he does not have open sores but he does have some scabs. The other oh... eight or ten cockerals are all in better shape.

    Do I let it go on, or should I pull him into the house to heal up?

    They're still small for butchering and he's a nicely mannered thing.

    He's rather cuddly with me and the hens.

    I would seperate him and give him time to heal.
