It was just over two weeks ago that I took this photo of Speckles bottom.
Compare it to this photo. She has rows of pin feathers and the gap is closing up. As the fluffy feathers open the gap should fill in.
I am so pleased that her new feathers have come through so quickly and that they aren’t being pulled again. Hopefully this means that the problem has passed without becoming a habit and she will soon be back to normal.
I really think it was the stress of the girls being confined to only half of the run that triggered this and now the girls are fully integrated the problem seems to have passed. This is really good news.
