I have seen 1 of my hens pecking feathers out of two chickens. She is pecking below the vent and bare skin is showing. They have started laying and are RIR's. They are about 35 weeks old and have a coop that is a suitable size and a massive run. I feed them layers pellets and oyster shells and sometimes give them treats. There is a light in the coop that is white. What do i do? Do i put something on their feathers. I would like it to be cheap to do if possible.
