I have ten young chicks, they will be one year in May. One was an accidental rooster, as they were all supposed to be female. He bred the lower chicks in the flock so much, he ripped out feathers under the wings. I saw it, and didnt catch it. I saw white feathers starting to show and thought my red chick was growing white feathers!? Now I know. So the rooster is seperated, but now the head hen catches them and pulls out on top of where he already denuded. My question is, I have some "Pick No More" which I hear is great and effective because they hate the odor. So if the bully hen hates it, what happens to the hen on whom I administer it? How do they stand the smell? What about preening? How long does this stuff stink, and how long do I have to use it? I am bringing the bully in the house for a few days, and when shes returned, I will either use the pick no more, or saddles.
