    Very happy I found this site. My rooster has lost some tail feathers and his rear is bloody. Trying to figure out what to do to help him and why it's like that?

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! I'm sorry to hear your roo is poorly :hugs Has he been attacked? Could you post some pics? I would advise you to pop by the emergencies section with a full description of what is going on with him. I'm sure members there will be able to help you. Here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures

    Good luck with him I hope you get him well again soon :fl

    Hi and welcome to BYC - glad you have joined us. Hopefully the injury experts will help you out. The Learning Centre is a good place to begin to familiarise yourself with everything chicken. You may also find your joining your state thread useful (just type your state in the search box) as it will allow you to get to know other BYC members in your area.


    all the best

    I hope all will be well with your rooster. Yorkshire coop has given you the emergency forum to post on so I'll just wish you luck.

    It's nice to have you here!

    Sounds like some predator grabbed him - maybe a dog, and he was lucky to get away. Hope he will be okay.
