Boy, this has got to be some sort of record. I noticed this morning that one of our Welsummer chicks that we brought home last night was pecking and pulling at her own left wing pinfeathers (she is 5 days old today) hard enough that she has it bloody. I can't see any wound on the wing itself. It all looks like it is coming from the newly erupting pin feathers. We got her out and cleaned up the feather with peroxide to get the blood off of it and put it back with her brooder mates. No active bleeding noted but the silly thing immediately began pulling at her own wing feathers again. So we pulled her out and cleaned it up again. I know these things have got to be uncomfortable coming in and she is in a rotten mood. The minute she rejoined her companions she began pecking at anyone who came near her. Do I need to get some blue cote if this keeps up or should we proceed as we have, keeping her clean and hoping that she works through the new feather coming in. I haven't noticed anyone picking at her. She seems to be doing it all to herself so separating her isn't going to do a bit of good. None of the other chicks seem to be bothered by those funny things on their wings, just this one little girl. Always a problem child in the bunch. Guess she is looking at being called 'Trouble'.
