    Is there any possibility that one of the hens is feather picking/plucking?

    Well, I thought about that, but I have never seen anyone picking on it. He has 6 hens in his group. As long as no one feels like he is in peril, I won't worry. He looks happy, crows, and does normal rooster things. I just have never seen this before.

    Thank you sourland for responding.
