    My WCB Polish roo, Al is bald - he has also become rumpless with no tail. He was picked on in the winter and when his feathers just start to grow they get pulled out again. I think part of the situation is his nice pink head sticking out is just to appealing not to peck. It may be a bit crazy but I collected some feathers that were laying around and super glued them on. I only put on a few but enough to cover his bald spot. I tried to fix his missing tail but that was a bit impossible. Anyway as crazy as he looks we'll see if it helps.

    I opened this up in a tab, looked at it, smiled, closed the tab, then went...

    'Wait..."

    Opened it back up...scrolled to the bottom, and laughed myself silly at the second picture.

    well, that might actually work by diverting the unwanted attention. Let us know how it goes. [​IMG]

    too cool. I hope it works.
    I have a hen that they pecked on so badly it ripped her skin, once the blood started... it got very bad very quickly.
    She is still in isolation because I was thinking that I needed to let the feathers return... now you have the gears churning.
    Let us know how this worked out. if in a few days he is not being swung around by the super glued feathers... I am trying it myself.

    oh! Yes! a entire new business for you! we can send you molts and you can make us toupees. [​IMG]
    except the tail feathers ...um, they don't look as natural! [​IMG]

    hahaha! that rooster needs a pony tail to cover his bald spot. The tail thing made me think of those cartoons as kids when another character wanted to be a chicken so he put a plunger on his bum with a mop or feathers on it. hehehe.
