Hi all, i currently have 8 hens. Five are going to molt this fall, the others are still babies. Two hens are going into their second molt, and three into their first. Having been around birds all of kinds, i know that feather condition is of the utmost importance. But none the less, due to pecking, and them simply being hard on their own tails, and even mites that i didn't catch right away, their feathers are looking somewhat rough. One of my hens that is approaching her second molt, didn't even molt last year, so she is looking really rough. so i want to be able to start their feather condition all over again, by encouraging a good heavy and healthy molt. Do you guys have any tips concerning that? also, what do you do to deter feather damage from the pecking order? my lead hen (The best layer) and her sister (the second best layer) (Both are RSL'S) are hard on two other RSL's. oddly enough they leave my buff orphington alone. please address both questions in your answers. thank you so much!!!!
