    Ihave recently got 3 golden laced cochin bantams and 1 hen has her tail feathers pulled out and the rooster has a spot like that on his chest but the other hen does not have even have 1 feather that has been plucked off of her the laddy said that hen is plucking featheres because she recently moved them from a really big cage to a REALLY small cage for a week how can i stop them from picking on the hen and rooster?

    How much space do they have? I have found feather pulling and other bad behavior stops when they have plenty of room and lots of things to relieve the boredom.

    I have a little gold laced cochin bantam flock too! Aren't they just sooooo pretty?! I thought I would never have bantams, but when I saw them I couldn't resist. Do you have any pics?
