I found one of the sickle feathers on my rooster is bleeding. The keratin sheath just kind of cracked and now there is blood all over it and my hens started pecking him. I have him removed from the flock. I bathed him to get all the blood off so I could see the feather. The more I look at it I am thinking it would be best to just pull the whole feather out. If someone has experience with removing a bleeding feather I would really be grateful for some advise.
