    Do you know that she may be a meat bird? Just from the photos, she looks like one, and they are usually much bigger, grow faster, eat lots more food, and are usually meant for butchering around 6-7 weeks old. They will probably peck at the bloody spot, so either coat with some BluKote or betadine, or ahe may need separating. It looks like they are at the age when they start arranging a pecking order.
