i have had three chickens for nearly a year now, but recently i have noticed that on two of them their legs have gone bald, i thought possibly they were malting but the other day when i let them in the garden i noticed that the third chicken was pecking the other two and pulling their feathers out! has anyone else had this problem or give me some advice as to what i should do? thanks

Sounds like the third one is aggressive. It is up to you what you want to do about it, but if I were in your shoes I'd get rid of her. I do not tolerate aggressive behavior from anyone.

Sorry, I'm not much help here.

You could always put on pinless peepers. One of my girls sport them as she is a comb ripper. I have noticed her attitude has changed in the last several months and I just may "release her on bail"!

These things stop them from aiming and firing off their beaks where they don't belong and work great for feather pluckers. Good luck!
