Kind of new to chickens. Just picked up 2 hens from an egg farm that were getting rid of their older flock.:/ 1 hen looks great, the other seems to have been getting "pecked" on. All of her tail feathers are gone and her "butt" is bare. Is there anything I can do to make sure she is ok? To me it looks like red inflamed skin, but I don't know know if that is normal or not. No blood, just raw.

Put some skin cream on it because if it is red it must be uncomfortable for her and you do not want her to scratch at it if it itches ...


You might want to give her some extra protein in her feed for a couple of weeks to help with feather growth ...
