Red flesh exposed

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I got five red sex links a month and a half ago and about 2-3 years old. The one at the bottom of the ladder gets picked on and always has flesh exposed on her neck and sometimes shoulder. I know hens pecks at red flesh but is there something I can put on her to allow her to heal and grow feathers back?

I'd start with a bottle of blu-kote.  It contains an antiseptic and will color the entire area blue, which will keep the other chickens from pecking it.
