I have one hen out of 15 that is losing her tail feathers what should I do?????????????
I'm not sure, but I'm just letting you know that someone read your post and is offering a free bump~
Any other symptoms, and pictures if possible are always helpful to the chicken-doctors here.
How old she is. She may be molting. If so she will be fine and the feathers will grow back in.
Either molting or one of the others is pulling out her feathers.
I had two mom's "sharing" 7 babies - they each hatched their own, but the one mom would pull out the others tail feathers when she got mad
My bantams also went through a little molt, and first thing to go were the tails - but they grew back pretty fast.
any other symptoms would be good to list. I know that above the tail is a very common site for pullets to peck each other...I wouldn't be surprised if the girls are pulling her tail feathers out. Good luk, hope she's ok
Thank you all for your help . I think she is molt becouse shes fine but no tail God bless you all and thanks again.
