In the Brooder
- Jun 1, 2011
I went back to feed my flock today and one of my girls had her entire head of feathers plucked out and she was lying on the ground in pain. She's usually really skittish and she let me just pick her right up. She doesn't look good. I know my girls have a pecking order, but I've never seen them be overly aggressive. There is also a rooster in the pack. What could cause this sudden turn? Also, do I separate her? I know she's older than the rest and she's smaller. The only way I can separate is to keep her in a crate like thing until she heals.
