Hello all, im new here and have a question. The other day i saw one of my males start getting all puffy and strutty, and was harassing the hell out of one of my females. I know they are in the first time stage of mating, so i ignored it. The next day my wife went out and found the one female inside the indoor section with the skin ripped off the back of her head and neck. I isolated her immediately and sprayed her with game bird wound care 3 times a day. Unfortunately this morning i went to the pen i moved her to by herself and she had passed. Just trying to figure out if this is normal or not. I have about 15 females and 7 males. They are 18 weeks old and we have never had any issue before.
