    Our buff Orphington has feather loss on the back of her head and on her upper wings. The skin looks a little raw and a slight amount of blood behind her head. We would suspect the other chickens are pecking at her, but we have not seen the other chickens doing so.
    Background. Four chickens, two Buffs, two Barred Rocks. Always kept in a run but 80 sq/ft for four birds.
    What are we to do?
