My Sultan Roo has been pecked really bad on the foot. His feathers all almost gone and he is bleeding. I started the flock on Sunday and it contained 5 buttercups and 2 white giants and the roo. The roo was new to these birds but the gals had been together. One buttercup pecked him @ first but then stopped. But it had started again this AM.

I introduced a dominecker on wed. to the group. But this morning , I gave all but 1 buttercup to a fellow farmer. They were not very nice. The girls are laying. I am sure they are stressed but I am getting great eggs!

Please advise
