    I just got 7 barred rock hens and a black australourp roo about a week ago. All the hens are picking on this one hen (which I pictured above) they've pecked her eye! She stays in the coop most of the time and when I feed them I have to feed her in the corner because they won't let her eat! I took the picture to show her eye..I think she looks healthy besides her eye. What do you all think? What should I do?

    I would separate them for a while I had that same problem but when I separated one then a few days later I put her back with the rest and they left her alone I don't know if it would work for you but you should still try
