Hello, my name is Michele and this is my first post. I am raising a flock of 12 hens. We got them last April and this is my first winter with them. All was going so well until our first snowstorm. A day or two after the snow we noticed our hens with a big open wound and I immediately separated her so she could heel. I ordered her a saddle and she has that on now and back with the flock. It is working well to protect her. I have 3 main girls that are doing the feather picking and even eating the feathers. I have been giving them BOSS every day, but they continue to pick and eat feathers. Today I tried putting on pinless peepers. I put the first pair on and when I brought her back they swarmed around her like a shark frenzy and began pecking her face really bad and I got scared, picked her up and took them off. I was so hopeful that this was going to be a much needed solution. Why haven't I read about anyone else experiencing this horrible reaction from the rest of the flock to the ones wearing the peepers?
