    I've been watching the girls and the only hen that's getting plucked is Lady Ga Ga... and ONLY her beard. It's the SLW's I think. They are rather feisty and pretty much boss everyone around, even Earl our roo. I could separate them except that they have only been integrated with the tweens for about 10 days. BTW the SLW x3 and Lady Ga Ga were raised together, this behavior just started. And she had such a beautiful beard [​IMG]

    Chickens will pick at anything that is unusual. That's why fancy chickens like Polish birds have a tough time staying beautiful around other birds. Try some No-Pick/Hot Pick, but keep it out of your bird's nose and mouth.

    Good luck.
