    My guy is looking rough, and I'm not exactly sure why. In some spots he's down to skin, in others the heathers are, i guess, broken and fluffy feeling. We had to remove an aggressive roo from the coop, but that's been weeks ago, and this guy, Hopper, is the only roo now. Could this be aggression from the hens? [​IMG][/IMG]

    Have you check for mites/lice?
    How old is he - do you have a picture of him, showing whole body and a body shot of the damage showing as well?
