In the Brooder
- Jan 1, 2010
I have an 8th month old Brahma rooster who had a red streak down his leg last Sunday--I just thought that he had scraped it on something. The "scrape" looks like a red line running down his leg. It appears to be getting redder (not bloody, just red) and this morning I noticed he is getting this "scrape" on his other leg. He seems fine. Eating, drinking, walking fine, servicing his hens, no other problems. It looks today like maybe he (or the hens) are pulling out his leg feathers. I don't have any other problems with feather pulling. Any suggestions for treatment or what this might be? I have a 2nd rooster in with him (they grew up together) and he does not have this problem. Thanks!
