Hello All, I have two hens who got their butt feathers pecked out by the other girls. I'm assuming she broke an egg and got it on her feathers. Anyway, she starts to grow them back but the other hens peck them out. She now stopped laying eggs, which I figured was coming anyway. My main concern is when they molt. They will molt in October (even though its February) and then its winter and they still wont have any feathers if they do what they are doing now. They are locked up in their run because there is snow all over the ground. Could they be bored? I had one loose feathers this past summer but grew them back within two months or so, but those were under her where the hens could not see them. My other concern is the ones with butt feathers missing are now going after the other four girls feathers so their butts become bare too which I do not want. How can I prevent this? I feed them a good layer mix (Brodhecker Mash and Purina Crumble) and oyster shells in their feed as well. Could they be doing this out of boredom? Any toy ideas? They are about eleven months old. Almost one year Thanks For All Your Help!
