    My light brahma pullet is 6 months old. She just started laying. I worked late tonight and when I got out to the coop, I noticed she wasn't roosting with the others. I found her in the corner of the run. Very lethargic and not excited about a meal worm. She almost looks like she's falling asleep. Don't see any other symptoms, but it is dark out.

    On closer examination, her backside was very bloody. I could see blood on the head of another. Looks like she was being pecked. I bathed her and separated her. I cannot see an injury, but she is so fluffy.
