    Hi,

    I've got 16 freedom rangers that are 3 weeks old. Overnight, one of them has started scratching her neck and it has become raw and is bloody. I'm realitively new to chickens - any ideas what might be causing this? Lice? I looked her over and didn't see anything. I've seperated her from the other chicks in the same brooder. Thanks.
