    My huge cornish X has two raw spots on the upper part of each wing it almost looks like road rash on each side!! It started yesterday and it was just few bare feathers on one side and now I just saw him and it's a couple inches wide on both sides!!! What is this?? He is the biggest bird in with his original group of six. I don't think anyone is pecking him. He is the only roo. He is 11 weeks old and is going to be processed soon. I can't post a pic until later. I need someone else to do it for me. Any thoughts would be appreciated. He is on starter/grower and grass and treats. The coop floor is straw. No one else is like this.

    I don't know. 11 weeks is a long time to keep a Cornish X. I don't even know whether you should eat him.
