I'm not sure if this is in the right section so I apoligize if it isn't. Anyway. I've been noticing lately that my hens are missing spots of feathers. I know it's not molting because it is in large spots. I figure it can be mice, mites, or my rooster. I know some of it is him. I'm going to spray them with blu kote tonight and whenever it dries up around here me and my dad are gonna add wood ash to their dust bath spots and dust them with it for mites. Then we will have to figure out how to check for mice. So should I take my rooster out till they all heal up? This may sound stupid but I don't want him to be sad lol he's never been in a cage by himself. I have a dog pen he can go in on another part of the property or I have a smaller (maybe 4 x 6) pen. Inside my chicken run. Which would be better?
