We have 2 Polish and 2 d'uccle that are each 11 weeks old and not yet intergrated into the flock of 11 older girls (who are all about 3 months older).
We keep them a covered dog pen in the yard while the others free range for a "look but don't touch" exposure.
Yesterday was forecast for heavy rains most of the day, so we put the littles into their house (a plastic playhouse) early.
Went to let everyone out this morning and omg. There was standing water in their house, but worse yet, almost all the vanes from the Polishes heads were GONE Shafts intact, but vanes gone.
At this point I assume it was stress rather than pecking, because there was nothing wrong with the 2 d'uccles who were in there (other than their wet feet.) and no signs of wounds or broken shafts.
I feel so bad for them!!
There's no blood or anything just the somewhat bare heads.
Anything I can or should do?
Second photo: Tailfeathers on the laced are just wet. The white crested is the one whose butt got plucked (by the dogs, probably) a couple weeks ago, so she just has a couple good ones right now.
