    i dont understand how he is getting the feathers out though? he might have had a lot more out and actually ate them but this is only time i have caught him today, i have put a divider in the brooder now

    Are they both male? That may be the source of your problem- maybe they are trying to get the pecking order straightened out. Keep them separated for now.
