Thanks for looking!

My roosters one RIR the dominate male the other EASTER EGGER has basicly no tail feathers left the other has picked them all basicly gone. He is not bleeding or any thing he just looks naked back there. Is there any thing I can do to prevent/help this? I have tried seperating them but they just are so miserable. and right now i got chicks in the other pen Any suggestion greatly appreciated

Doesn't look like they are caged and bored there... so might have to seperate them and coat the wounds in blue kote or anti pick. They just seem to have a beef with each other.

I got this stuff from my local feed store called "rooster booster". it is a thick liquid to put on the spots that they pick at. it smells and tastes bad, it has worked for mine, it might be worth a try for you. good luck
