    Is she being pecked by others? I'm not sure... Maybe post a pic? If she's not in distress she'll probably be fine. I'd say just watch her

    She's not in distress. But one of the other chicks and her got in to a little fight so maybe thats it?[​IMG]

    Maybe. Sometimes they go back for more once they get a taste of blood. I'd seperate her until she heals if you see the others pecking at her any more
