    One of our red stars was pecking on our cochin rooster so bad that his legs were bleeding. The others were leaving him alone. We rehomed the pecker after 3 days in solitary and no change in behavior

    Now that she is gone, two other hens are now following the roo around pecking at his legs.

    What should we do?
