The bottom picture is the set up I have for them I put the seven chickens in the back and put her in the front their wings are clipped
Do you have a rooster?

If she is getting beat up separate her in a cage within the site of the flock. You need to evaluate her to make sure she's not sick.
Check her crop to see that it's empty in the morning, look her over for lice/mites, feel her abdomen for any bloat/fluid and get a fecal float to check for worms.
