Found one hen pecking the heck out of another hen today. This has never happend before, The ladies are a year old and have always gotten along very well. I separated them and sprayed some Blu-Kote on the wounds which were quite deep. Does anyone have a solution or suggestion for how to keep the pecking hen from pecking? I read something about a ring that can be looped thru there nostrils, but also am wondering about a possible poultry mask? I would hate to put her down because she was showing cannibalistic tendencies but will do whatever is necessary to take care of the rest of the flock. I also put a homemade apron on the injured hen because I noticed that she started to peck at her own wounds. She seems to be doing okay thru out the day as she ate well, and also laid an egg. Thank you in advance for anyone that responds.
