I've got a polish hen that is relatively high in the pecking order but has been getting pecked. I don't know what to do. It's the feathers on her head. A little bit of blood from the feathers coming out, but none from pecking. Separated her so she could heal and then put her back in. Again, the feathers on her head (two days after I put her back in) are mostly gone. The missing feathers are on the top of her crest, and the missing feathers are in a circle about the size of a quarter. Any ideas about how to keep this from happening again?
