I'm sorry if this isn't posted in the right spot, but I'm worried about one of the chickens in my flock. She is the runt and she is very broody. She spends most of her time in the nesting box and I'm worried that she's not getting the right nutrients to be healthy. Her feathers are very rough and mangey and not soft like my other two chickens. She's also balding in some spots, but that could be from the other two girls pecking at her. If anybody has some advice on how to get her out of that nesting box or how to make sure she gets all the nutrients she needs to be a healthy girl, or how to make her feathers nice soft and full again it would be much appreciated I'm going to attach a picture of her for reference.
