I have 5, 20 month old hens that just entered their first molt. Ruby, our EE'er, which has always been our most mature bird (first to lay, large bird, first to molt), has always been the low girl on the pole. She has always held her own till recently. All the other girls(2 RIRs, 1BR, and one other EE'er) have recently begun their molt as well. Lately Ruby is bullied pretty good. Not getting to the feeder or water as she should, and just yesterday i noticed they have pecked a quarter sized wound in her back. I separated her for the afternoon, and got her plenty of food and water, and put some peroxide on her wound. Keeping her separate is not an option. Anyone had a similar experience? Any advise? Thanks in advance... P.S. This site is full of great information.
