My rooster had tore up my hens before I got rid of him. Well, I put saddles on them and waited. Some grew back and others just don't like wearing the saddle. That's not the biggest problem. The ones that were never plucked by the rooster has started to get a spot above the tail. And the one that grew back has a little spot on the shoulder. I am so sick and tired of trying to get them to grow feathers back and not getting anywhere. Some havent grown them back at all since he left. Of course with a saddle coming off every five minutes that could be it. One molted so she is looking pretty good besides that spot on her shoulder but the rest just won't moult and they are a little over a year. It would be so nice if they would but... I guess I can't ask for everything.
