    Our lovely Orpington cockerel is letting the hens peck at his chest and side of his head, he is starting to look a bit sore and they have pulled a lot of [​IMG]feathers out. It has been happening for a while but quite sore now. He is too quiet to tell the hens to get off. Any ideas how I can stop them please?
