My Georgie is in with 16 hens, and I recently noticed that he seemed to have a small bald area just before the start of his tail. It wasn't red and the only one checking it out was George. So this is what the girls did to him while they were in the run today while I was gone all of 6 hours. The poor boy has 4 tail feathers left and is now in my tack room isolated from the girls. We used a bit of warm water, antibiotic ointment and then some Blu-Kote. I always thought it was the other way around....?
