Title: feathers?
Post by: MR BROWNING on April 21, 2004, 10:49:13 PM
I'm new to raising birds this year. I have 60 chuckers in a 10 x 18 ft room with many perches. I know its mating season but they are ripping feathers out of the back of each others heads. I have it semi dark inside. some of the birds look pretty raw back there. should i open them up to the outside flight pen? if i do that when & what should i deworm them with? I came here looking for former posting on this , but i gues we have to start over. thanx in advance , Mike

If I were you I would open the flight. That amount of birds in that space in breeding season sounds a bit cramp.  I wouldn't really worry about worming cause chuckars area tought bird. But if your really worried about it I would go with Ivomec.  I personally think it works great.
