Oyster Cracker has a bald spot on the back of her head behind her comb. I believe Chocolate gave it to her. As she submitted to his interests, he used to grab her with his beak on the back of the head repetitively. As, you know, we rehomed Chocolate a few months ago, and still, no feathers have grown back. Is is possible that they will grow back once she molts this Fall? She is right next to Tilly on the pecking order, so I do not believe other chickens are responsible for this, especially because no one else in the flock has this bald spot. A friend suggested putting some Blu Kote on it and seeing if anything returns. Is it be possible that her feathers will never return? Poor girl. What should this Chicken Mom do?
