Here is one to ponder. I went out and checked on all my birds today, everyone appears to be happy and healthy, but I noticed one of my hens has started doing something she does every year. I had hoped she would not do it this year, but no such luck. This is my approx. 10 year old silver pied hen. Mother to KKB's Nanu, and also to one of Kathy's PA 4. She is the hen that had the late hatch that produced Poopbaby and Tsunami who is still with her. They are in their own private pen, so no real stressors. This hen has done this same thing for the last 5 years or so. She picks/pecks at her own wing feathers until they bleed profusely, just the primaries. I didn't have my camera with me, but I will take and post some pictures soon. She always does it around this time of year and sometimes there are puddles of blood under her perch. Every year I get freaked out and think she is going to kill herself, but so far she has survived it. This just started at some point in the past 3 days, I had hoped the distraction of the late chick would keep her from doing it. Since it always happens around now, I am thinking it may be related to feather regrowth. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
