The chick is almost 3 weeks old, but the mom hen is plucking her head feathers and now he is bald and bloody, what can I do?
Thanks for your help.

How bad is the plucking? My male will do this around 3 weeks, but not too bad. He tends to chew pin feather round side and under wing area. But, babies will grow back the plucked feather If the plucking is very serious, you can remove the hen, the male will feed them at least one more week, you may consider hand feeding at that point.
