    and I have several of the hens that survived (we lost 25 ttl) that have not "feather healed" yet...

    however...the more I look at this; it looks more like the Roo mounts THESE two hens more than any others as they are missing MORE and MORE of their feathers....

    WDYT?

    Now this poor turken hen....she really didi look like this, but not THIS SEVERE after the attack...she had lost a TON of feathers everywhere...but she is losing more and more now... the other hens feathers are growing back...slowly...but not her..she's getting worse and worse!!

    The first one is from mounting, the second one is moulting. Perfectly normal.

    ok, well she's already moulted once..and just came out of it a few months ago; along w/the rest of them...
    but then she was attacked and lost a TON of feathers when attacked..but now she just looks worse/n worse almost everyday...

    just thought maybe she had something wrong..??

    She may be moulting again to replace all those lost feathers.
