    Came home from work today only to go out to the coop to observe what seemed to be a sick chicken only to find out the other hens had been pecking at her anus. Now she's in the house recovering, not knowing what to do? Help!!! Not sure if she'll make a full recovery. What to do?????

    You should post this on the injury section. It sounds like there's something wrong with your chicken's vent. In the emergencies/injuries/diseases section, you'll find a series of questions to answer (type of bird, age of bird, type of housing, etc.), go through and answer those questions and I'm sure you will get the help you need.
