    Please tell us more about your situation.
    How many chickens? roos total?
    What is their diet?
    How big is the coop and run?
    Have they been together for a while, or new introductions?

    Try cleaning them with tea tree oil first, it's a nice little anti biotic. There are "Anti-peck" sprays around, thouugh i am not 100% what they are called... google? [​IMG]
