My husband and I are very new to chickens, having only purchased them 2 weeks ago. We have a total of 4...3 New Hampshire Reds and 1 Ameraucana. They are all approximately 5 months and I was told they were laying, but have yet to get an egg. This is not our problem though. My favorite, Charlene (a red) has had her back feathers picked out for an area of about 2 inches in diameter. Some of the roots (???) are still in, but there are little bloody areas where the entire feather has been pulled. She is the sweetest, friendliest and smartest of the group so we are pretty upset. Any suggestions on how to remedy a bullying situation and how to treat the sore area? All responses are greatly appreciated.
