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?Answer:
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.
