    I think I found something that will work to keep my Isa Browns from constantly tormenting the other three.(2 easter eggers, and one RIR) I smeared a touch of metholatum on the spot where they were pecking and I only saw one major schirmish last night and none this morning. Hopefully that will be the end of the torment. [​IMG]
  2. Inventive! We had a similar problem and I just kept covering her w/ that Blukote stuff. It's pretty nasty, but at least it stopped the pecking. Hope your recipe works.
