    Yesterday, I discovered my smallest white Silkie (Yolko Ono) had a bloody spot on her back. Further investigation uncovered pulled feathers between her wings. I've isolated her in a cage with food, water, and a heat lamp for night. I've also sprayed her liberally with Blu-Kote. Any idea how long I need to keep her away from the other birds (assuming she's not doing this herself)? I suspect Moe the Roo (the old horn-dog). She is really quite sad in iso.

    Oh, and how do I re-integrate her?
