    This chicken is eating fine, her weight is a little low, she drinks normally. The othercchickens have been picking on her a lot more and her feathers are looking very rough. Could this be a disease or possible beginning a hard molt? [​IMG]

    Looks like she could use a saddle as the rooster is ripping up her feathers ....... No I do not see any Molt yet .....

    Makes sense! Her and our rooster have a very close bond which is strange... But he's not monogamous... Thanks for the help! I wonder if that's why she's being picked on?

    Could be just like the teachers pet and the other kids in the school yard theory .....
