In the Brooder
- Aug 28, 2015
I have a rooster who is just over 1 year old. The hens always lightly pick his feathers, and his neck is quite bare (can see a patch of skin the size of a few quarters), and he also is light on feathers elsewhere. Does anyone know if that is bad for the winter? I imagine it is, as it can be -25 celcius (-30 F?) a number of days a year. Just wondering if he will survive, or if I should get rid of him before the cold sets in?
