    Thats the question! One of our chickens continues to peck at another one of our chickens, pulling her feathers out and creating red marks on her wings..What can I do? Any ideas welcome!

    Pecking is often a sign of overcrowding. How many birds do you have and how much space--coop and run? What are you feeding them and how old are they?
