    Today I saw that one of my chickens, a Gold Star, (AKA sex-link) was getting picked on. One of my other Gold Stars was pulling feathers from the others chest. The peckee didn't try to get away. She also as some dull feathers. They are still soft. I am also wondering what Lice/Mites look like, so I can check my birds for them too.

    Thank you! I will probably quarantine her until I make sure she doesn't have them or until she grows some feathers back, because it is cold! she needs them.
