I having a problem with feather plucking and some of my pullets are looking shabby and with a little bleeding. I appears it is my little 23 week old Leg horn pullet who is causing most of the damage. After doing some research on the forum it appears I doing the right things. I'm not having this problem with my 5 hens that are in the 8X4 tractor. Here is the important info. There is 7 pullets living in a 8X8 coop. With a 11 X 18 run. 64sq feet coop + 198sq foot run. There should be enough room for 16 birds. I give them a few hours of free ranging in the evening about 5 days per week. They are feed 17% protien organic layer feed which they have access to 24 hours a day. open pollinated corn, oats, spelt, roasted soybean, kelp, calcium and poultry mineral mix. it is blended in a hammer mill/mixer, coarse for larger birds I had switched from 20% grower when they were 18 weeks old. I have just started giving them additonal protien in the last 2 days like a duck carcuss and a chopped up cow heart in hope they will stop plucking and eating feathers. Soooo my question is..... Do a put the Leg horn in "time out /quarintine" and see if the plucking stops and maybe break her of it? Do I keep up with the additional protien and see if it stops? Do I just cull her and move on? Which will reduce my egg production by 10%. Do I do something I have not thought of? Thanks for any help.
