I came home today to find one of my BO hens laying by herself. On closer inspection, someone has pecked her so badly on her neck and back that it goes to the meat. I considered putting her down,but I decided to wait and see how she does overnight. I don't know if I am doing the right thing. I just don't want to lose her. I guess it could have been going on for a short while and I may not have noticed because it is kind of covered by feathers, but most of the damage must have happened today. I checked my other girls and a few have matted looking feathers like someone is really getting after them. One EE had her skin broken a little as well. I put the two in a makeshift hospital box w/a heat lamp,food and water for tonight. So, should I kill my rooster? Would the girls do this to eachother or is it probably all him? Why would he do this?
