I have 2 chickens that are a year old and one has been pecking the other one for a few weeks. She has an a bare spot on her back with an open sore. We used to have 3 chickens but one was attacked by a dog on February 16 and the chickens haven't been the same since then so I'm wondering if this has something to do with that. I sprayed her sore with some purple antibacterial/anti fungal stuff but that didn't seem to help with the pecking. She won't come out of the coop unless I let the other one out to free range or if I'm giving them treats, and even then, she is petrified of the mean chicken and won't get close to her. I'm not sure what else is can do other than get rid of the mean one. It's breaking my heart to see this! Help!
