I hate to give her up; she's a sweet bird who has just begun laying, and lays every day. She's easy to pick up and handle; docile, a sweetie. The problem is that she has developed an obsession for foot feathers. She doesn't bother any other feathers, but she <i>will</i> try to pluck out the foot feathers of my Faverolles. (She doesn't bother the Silkies... either they're too low to the ground or just too evil, haha). I wouldn't recommend her to be housed with any feather-footed breeds, though. The problem is not space; they have a very large coop, and free range over several acres. It's not protein; it's not methionone. I've tried no-pick solutions. It's just that Irma likes to eat foot feathers. I hate to butcher a laying hen, but she has bloodied several Faverolles... then I have to take them out until they've stopped bleeding and clean them up so no one else will begin pecking. It's a cycle I don't want to repeat, not to mention the risk of infection (walking around in the litter). SAVE THIS HEN! Is there anyone out there nearby who would like a perfectly lovey girl who promises to be a good layer?
