    Greetings from Kansas, mansfield, and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined our community! Do you know the reason for the picking? Boredom, crowdedness? Those are the usual causes. Bluekote is also a product that is used if the skin is broken. Here's a link if you'd like to chat with some local poultry folks: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread
    Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC!

    Finding out the reason for the picking could prevent future occurrences, do you know why they are doing it?
