Does anyone have any advice or home remedies to keep birds from pecking each other? I have 36 birds in 6 coop/runs. These are walk in runs. Plenty of room,protein....no mites or lice. I looked them over good at night with a flashlight and treated them anyway. I hatched my newest chickens June 1st last year, all in my newest set up. 12 hens an 1 roo. Since they were 5 weeks old they have pecked at each other. My polish roo has been bald the whole time. Most of the hens are bald around the vent. 2 are really ragged even on the breast. I let them outside when I'm off. They're around each other and I'm in and out of all of their coops. My older chickens are fine. I would think if it was something like mites all would be affected because of contact with each other and my clothes and shoes. They all get 16% crumbles, very little scratch, table scraps, old bread and LOTS of crushed boiled eggs..shell and all. They're all laying like crazy and seem to be healthy. 32 hens and 4 roos. Thanks for any help. JDR.
