    Help please, we have 6 hens and one of them is just getting beat up all the time, the other hens have pecked out her feathers on the back of her head and on her shoulders... I need to do something but I don't know what to do

    How much space do they have in sq. ft. for both the coop and run?

    Also, explain what is the makeup of their feed, protein percentage and additional things.

    What breed/s are they?

    I had a very small space for 5 chickens once and one of them always got beat up on. How big is your run? Is this chicken not eating or drinking? and hanging out by herself in the house? if that's the case then I have had this happen and I can help you.
