I just discovered last night WHO the problem is...Matilda (who is not even the top dog) just randomly pulls feathers out of all 4 Marans. They are strating to look really shabby and they just stand there and let her do it! She doesnt even look mean about it...just leans over and pulls out a few and if they move away she just follows them around til she gets a few. No one else is doing this. Be straight with me. Should I just have a BBQ and get it over with? I just dont have the means to separate her and all that business. They have a high protein diet, toys, snacks, LOTS of room. I put blukote on last night and that hasnt deterred her a tiny bit. These other girls are going to be in trouble if she draws blood and they look terrible. It sounds like there is no easy fix. They hatched in Feb. Now on another note I lost a few recently so if she goes I really would like to have 5 or so more. Is it a bad idea to get started birds and integrate them or just suck it up and wait til spring to get more? Im feeling very discouraged.
