In the Brooder
- Apr 19, 2016
I have several pullets who have picked the feathers off their back/tail area. I have assumed it's parasites, and put some DE where they dust bathe... but it's hard to tell if the problem is fixed? I saw one with a little drop of blood, like she'd picked at a feather again, but couldn't figure out if it was because of new feathers coming in or remaining parasites, or something else entirely. I don't see any bugs on them, but I might not know what I'm looking for. TIA!
