Poor little Freda, my RIR is as bald as a bowling ball! The roo is biting her head while doing his "thing" so often and has left her looking so pathetic. She gets a little bloody and scabby at times too. Margaret, my BA is starting to look similar now too. I put some pine tar on Freda's head today, but it didn't seem to be deterring the rooster. I also noticed that when the rooster is doing his "thing," Alma the EE who is the head hen will come over and peck poor little Freda in the head, like she's jealous or something. So she's being bitten, molested and pecked all at the same moment. Other than this, there is no pecking going on. Any suggestions? Will this just resolve on its own over time, or should I separate her for a while?
