They have some stuff you can buy to apply to birds.Its anti picking products.#1 blue kote  $8.95 a quick drying wound covering.It has a unpleasant taste ,Hot pick to stop cannibalism,#2 Hot pick It contains bitter herbs and spices $16.95 #3pine tar,can be used to cover a wound from picking.Not intended for birds you eat.  I had birds that skinned other birds.They were males and only wanted to fight.I separated them, and when I went to put them in another cage they got  away.Murray Mc Murry sells it as do a lot of other ,places,stromburgs chicks and game birds, and probally incubator ware house

Blue kote is good do not get red kote as it will not stop but make it worse.Should be available at your feed store.

I would try a higher protein feed, if you aren't giving them enough protein they will start eating each other!
