      I have 8 Sexlinks that we bought from someone this summer. I think they about 1-1.5 years old. I had a hen that was picked on. She looked really bad, but no blood. I put that blue spray on her and have started feeding/watering her in the roosting area of their pen. I have given her extra protein etc and she looks great. My problem is, if she comes down to see what's going on when I come in, they still pick on her! If they go up to the loft area, she'll even fly up to her roosting rod. She's able to stay away from them, but they are NOT accepting her back. I watched them today and it seems they will all go after her. They don't attack her, but they chase and peck if they can. She then goes away. I am happy to pen up the bullies, but I am not sure it's just 1 or 2, I think it's about all of them. I could seriously get rid of them all and start with a breed that doesn't do this, if there is such a thing. Suggestions?
