    i just noticed that one of my chickens is missing some feathers on her bihind she also has some dried blood. I am not sure where the blood is coming from but i think the other chickens are pecking at her. I am going isolate the chiken with the problem till she gets better. Any suggestions on how to treat the injured chicken?

    just make sure she is still not bleeding.
    my wyndotte had this happen a lot.
    now she is no longer lowest in pecking order, so she has feathers now on here butt!
