    I have a 2+ year old game cock and he is losing his neck feathers. They look either broken half way or missing. He looks like he has mange. THis has been going a week or so. DO roosters/chicken molt? My game cock(rooster)now seems to allow my other rooster (Rhode Island Red) rule the rooster. [​IMG]. Can someone help me or advise me what is going on with my once pretty rooster?
