    I have a hen that is red raw and losing feathers. Could this be from my rooster or some type of pest? Should I seperate her from the rest ? Any ideas would be great. Thanks. [​IMG]

    Those are common problems with roosters or cockerels. Sometimes they pick favorites to mate with. I would get a hen saddle which the rooster will stand on fabric and won't ruin thier feathers.

    Concur. More hens might help as well, more variety.
