    A few weeks ago one of my pullets died, and I found blood around the vent when I inspected her. Now I have another girl with blood and sore skin around her vent. I noticed that the other girls were chasing her around pecking at it, but then I saw that she was pulling at her own feathers too. I bathed her in some soapy water and disinfectant and am keeping her in a box inside for now. She was walking and standing funny earlier but that might have stopped now. What is the matter with her?
