    Hi. Will a speckled Sussex who suffered a loss of tail feathers by an aggressive roo grow them back when he molts?

    Thanks

    [​IMG] I would imagine so, tho it may be slow going - keep them apart.

    Hello Redsoxs and Drumstick Diva. I'm thinking of adopting the SS from my niece to save the rest of his feathers, but also worry about introducing disease into my hen house. Any advice on how cot avoid this? They are only 3 months old so not egg-laying yet.

    Thank you Houdan. Let the learning commence! I've been on the site as a voyeur for months but just now joined to ask my own questions. BYC is full of wisdom!
