One of my Brabanter hens has gotten pecked at by some of the others. This is a picture of what her back looks like. I need help. How do I treat this? Should I quarantine her from the others? I am already quarantining another Brabanter and have another place to put her, but it's a small dog house that is far from the chicken coop. In other words, she will be completely separated. How long should I keep her separate? Will she ever be able to go with the others again?
This has been a problem for me. I had 3 Brabanters. One died because she was pecked at and bleeding, I separated her in the dog house, she was never accepted in the flock, and she got sick and died. The other Brabanter got pecked on her neck and is separated in the coop in a small cage. Not this 3rd Brabanter is injured. I am frustrated and at a loss. I was going to go to the feed store today to pick up some feed, so please reply soon if I need to pick up some kind of medication or what not.
