    My polish chicken live with other chickens, they are getting their feathers on their heads picked out what can I use to prevent this. I seen the rooster booster no peck. but how about if it gets in their eyes? is there a way to make this on your own? thanks

    I would try the Rooster Booster Pick No More. I have used BluKote with good results with my 2 polish in a mixed flock. It comes in dab on and a spray. There are aluminum dressings such as Alushield, and you can try some bad tasting ointments such as Nustock, Vicks, or Bag Balm. The Pick No More, I believe is bad tasting.
