    I just went out to find one of my hens has been plucked almost completely clean down her back and has an open wound as well. Would the rooster do this? We have had him for a couple years now and he has always been pretty nice to the hens and gentle with people as well. So, I am just wondering if he did it or if a predator snuck in. Thanks!
