    [​IMG]I got a polish cockerel given to me with my batch of pullets (4 RIR, 4 white rocks, and 2 Australorps). Those girls don't seem to care too much for his little white fro and now he is practically bald. This is my first time raising chickens. I bought some Blu-Kote yesterday and put it on his poor little noggin. Is there anything else I can do to help? [​IMG]

    You might have to get him a polish girlfriend, and seperate them from the rest of the flock.
    When any of my big hens are being picked on, I send them for a little "vacation" in the banty coop. The little cohins don't seem to mind anybody but my RIR roo.
