    Not sure where to post this, it's just a curious question:

    Do pullets lose feathers more than roos? I am asking because last year I raised 9 roos,
    not by choice mind you....they were supposed to have been girls...
    Now I have 13 pullets and they seem to lose their feathers WAY more than the boys did...the coop
    is now full of their feathers....is this normal!?

    I haven't noticed that my hens lose more feathers than my roos. [​IMG]
