    You should probably separate her from your roosters or get her something for her back.
    Also her crooked tail is known as wry tail[​IMG]

    What is your rooster to hen ratio? And do they free range?

    Is that all rooster damage or is she molting as well? If roosters, it's been going on too long - poor baby that must hurt.
