    I would seperate him/her but I would also try to put it in with a less agressive mate so it's not lonely.

    Is it bald from pecking or do you think it's illness?
    Is it eating, drinking, pooing ok?

    If you don't know if he's being pecked, I would just monitor their activity. I don't want you to seperate needlessly. Is the bald spot red or inflamed?
