Apparel for Chickens With Feather Picking
(Lexington, KY US)
Apparel for Chickens With Feather Picking: I know this sounds strange.
I have a wonderful hen who is having her neck feathers picked out by another of my hens--I can't figure out which one.
Poor thing has a naked neck in the dead of winter. Would it be possible to wrap her neck in some kind of scarf or dickie? Or would that attract more bad behavior?
It actually does not sound that strange at all. I have heard of similar contraptions being put into play for these problems with mixed results.
I would say give it a shot, that it couldn't make it that much worse. Observe her for a few days and if you then think that it is not helping just discontinue.
Good luck and happy apparel making.
