    I have a coop with 15 chickens in it. One of my Buff's was attacked and has some wounds on her back. I separated her into another pen. The wounds appear to be scabbed over, she is still eating and drinking, and even laid an egg today. I was going to keep her separated until she is healed. Is there anything else that I should do. None of the other birds have any wounds on them. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Sounds like you are doing all you can. Put her back as soon as the scabs are dry and put some anti peck lotion or spray on the wounds. Prolonging the reintro may result in hostilities. just do it as soon as possible..........Pop
