    My RIR appears to be my rooster's favorite. Her saddle feathers look alright, but the poor dear has a bald spot on her head from him biting while he mounts her. Wondering if she'd wear a little cap to protect her head. [​IMG]

    if you can find a way to keep it on her then it might be worth it. My slw is the same way and I put blue cote on her head. so far so good! [​IMG]

    I'd be interested in hearing more about this - my BA & BR have the same problem. It's winter, and I wonder if it's too cold for them to be bald?

    I have this problem with a couple of mine too. Some roos just seem to have a favorite hen.
