We have lost 2 from their behinds being pecked. Managed to save a possible 3rd. We have had the pecker in a cage inside the coop for 5 days now. We let her mingle with the others after 2 1/2 days and she started up again after an hour. We let her have the coop and run when the others are free ranging, so she isn't pinned all day. We have to be away for a few days and I was wondering if Blu-kote would keep them from pecking each other if I sprayed all of their butts. I really hate to have her confined for those few days in a cage. The others will have the coop and run as they will not be able to free range. I have someone coming to let them out and close things up at night. The one that I am nursing back will stay in the house and be checked on also. I guess I am just worried about them harming each other while we are away. We also purchased a flock block to help keep them from becoming bored. I don't want to loose anymore of my babies.
