I have a chicken that is being pecked on her comb and behind it when I got home from the store today I saw her tangled up in some string and bleeding from her comb this is the same chicken that broke her toe she is a lot better no swelling in her toe but I don't know how to keep the other chickens from pecking on her any suggestions

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.
