I kept one meat bird from the last batch that I raised. She was the only hen, so I thought, what the heck. Named her Tweety. I integrated her into the flock the first time, and the didn't slam her too badly as far as trying to dominate her, but then the next morning they had started picking at her butt. I took her out, healed her up. So back into the coop and they did it again, only WORSE this time. Now, I was a bit smarter this time and slathered her tailfeathers and butt with BluKote AND Pine Tar. It seems is wasn't enough even tho she was black and blue all over her rear end. Somehow they saw a little bit of pink skin in there and went at her BADLY.... all this in one night. She is 12 or 13 weeks old and about 10 pounds... larger than ALL the rest. But as a meatie she is slow and cumbersome. She also isn't well feathered yet... might be some of the problem. So this time will take a little more healing time. Gave her a bath tonight and got all the crusties and blood and poop off, blow dried her, gave her treats and put her in the dog kennel. So what to do before then next attempt at integrating? I don't want her pecked raw and bloody again.
