In the Brooder
- Jul 18, 2020
My Barrack Rock has always kind of had this since a couple months ago is this molting ? She also has Poop stuck around her butt I need to bath her & take it off but is this normal?
I do but I have had him separate for about a week or two now since he was getting aggressive. Do you think she’s still recovering from that or something ?
Thank you! That helps out a lot )Yup. Looks like rooster activity. I separated my boy from the flock back in March (one of my hens had a huge gash on her side that resulted in expensive surgery - totally worth it, though). Poor Gerard is just a big boy (Buff Orpington), and now lives in a pen connected to the main coop/run but with no access to the girls (so he has to get cuddles from me now ).
Anyhoo, most of my girls had the missing/broken back feathers from him, and some STILL have yet to molt and regrow them, so yeah, it might take a while .
This is My rooster currently separated lol. Do you think this is frost bite? I live in TX where the weather changes between hot & cold. He also just recovered from Fowl pox about a couple months ago... do you think this is still affecting?Thank you! That helps out a lot )
