    Pick her up and look at her rear end. What do you see? Separate her from the ones doing the pecking. Give her a warm quiet place with food and water and watch her.

    Tell us what you see. Has he pecked her until her skin is broken? Does she have lesions? Is she red, swollen? Is there any tissue protruding? What do you see?
