I have a Broad Breasted Bronze hen that is laying, and appears that one of the Toms has injured her back. She has a nice gash down one side. I have her isolated from all of the Toms, but Im not sure what to do with her. I have considered putting her down, but not sure I want to at this point, as much because Im not prepared to invest the time and effort as that I dont want to loose her. The wife and I were just watching a Tom mount her yesterday and wondering if we should get her a saddle. She is a big girl, and the toms are all young first year boys and not sure they know exactly what they are doing. At least, Ive seen them just standing on her, like wondering, What do I do now? kind of thing. Im not sure where to buy saddles or how to make one. So guess Im looking for ideas how to handle the injury as well as information about saddles. We have 7 hens and 2 toms, and if at all possible, Id like to not repeat this with any of our other girls. Have been breeding turkeys for about 3 years and have never had this problem, but this is also the first year Ive kept the BBB hen long enough to breed and first year with Narragansetts. And for those interested, I do have a light on in the coop. Originally Ive had it on for about 12-13 hours all winter, but for the last several months only one of my 8 chicken hens has been laying, so a month or so ago I reduced the light to about 10 hours each day. Then about 2 weeks ago I increased it to 12 hours and in the last 3 days several more hens have been laying, including the BBB turkey. Today I got 5 chicken eggs and 1 turkey egg. Tonight I adjusted the light and had it come on a half hour earlier and stay on for an extra half hour at night. Funny thing is that the eggs I got from the BBB in the peacock cage today has different spots on it than most of the other 7-8 turkey eggs Ive gotten so far. I have 5 Narr hens, 1 Bourbon Red, one mixed and the BBB hen, so maybe one of my other ladies is laying also.
