    She walks with her head down and her white feathers are a target. We treated with Pick=no-more lotion and now she has a target on her head. We have to isolate her unless we are there or at night in the dark. Ideas to help?

    Poor baby. Isolating her for a while may help the other girls forget - sometimes they get into the "habit" of picking on someone. You could also try Blu Kote - I've used it before. Of course, you will end up with a purple crested polish.... [​IMG]
