So we I have this one chicken that is picked on by another chicken she is bleeding on her neck should I separate her or the picked on chicken because she has blood on her neck? We already washed it off put some stuff to help it on but I’m not sure whether to separate her or not

If there's blood it's time to step in. It can quickly turn to cannibalism. I would separate out the pecked on bird if others are also pecking it, otherwise remove the troublemaker.

You than need to figure out why it's happening. Generally it's from crowding, or even a protein deficiency.
