I have two hens in the house now as their feathers were being picked off their bottoms by the other girls. One is eating like there is no tomorrow, is in good spirits and active. The other is not eating any grain or seeds. She has only eaten pears and apples for the last several days. She is drinking water, but I don't understand why she will not eat her regular food or sunflower seeds. Her bottom is healing, but slowly. Both grew their feathers out and were put back into the coop and pen with the other girls after a little time for adjustment. There was some pecking order business, but it went pretty smoothly I thought. Two days later both were cleaned of their bottom feathers over night. Their skin was red and raw as it was in the 20's. I have been putting Blue Kote on them and triple anitbiotic creme without pain reliever. I can see new feathers coming in. I am concerned though the larger hen is eating only small amounts of fruit, her comb is very pale and she is not as spirited as usual. She spends most of her time on her roost inside the dog kennel or standing next to the other hen in the other kennel, but very quiet. BTW, the smaller hen has been crowing for a month now. She crooks her head like a rooster and lets out a pitiful crow, but a crow none the less. I know she is a she as she had been laying eggs the first couple of days she was inside. Any suggestions on getting the bigger hen to eat? Thanks!
