What can I feed them to help grow the feathers back? Should I put these two separate from the others
I have 3 roosters and 15 hens, thank you will look at my tractor supply hereYou can add extra protein to promote feather growth.
Some things I have see suggested:
Feed an all flock type feed (has a higher protein than layer), this can be fed to everyone regardless of age/laying status, just give oyster shells on the side for calcium.
Meat scraps and tuna are a good source of protein.
There is also a commercial "Feather Fixer" food that is made by Manna Pro you can find it at Tractor Supply, your local feed store or online. I haven't tried this one, but some people say it works well.
I'm sure others will have great ideas as well.
@beb444 made a good suggestion, to put aprons or saddles on them, this will help protect the new growth coming in.
How many hens to rooster do you have?
Are all 3 roosters with the hens?
