In the Brooder
- Nov 18, 2020
My rooster isn’t even a year old (so I guess he’s still a cockrel) and it seems that he’s molting? He’s slowly losing feathers on his neck, and the skin is bright red. I would be very alarmed except he’s not acting any different and I haven’t seen any insects in the coop. The ladies are all fine as well. My main concern is that it’s getting very cold (I live in Maine and we’ll be expecting snow in a couple weeks) I don’t want him to get frostbite. He’s always been skittish, so I can’t get a good look at him. I’d never be able to take him to a vet, and if there’s one around here that will come to our house, they’d literally have to tranquilize him to look at it. I don’t want to pay all that money and put him and the ladies through all that stress unless it was necessary! Thanks in advance.
