    Separate them first off.

    Get some bluekote and spray the area.

    Think more protein in diet, and more room and more activities to help put and end to the picking.

    I agree totally!! GET THEM OUT OF THERE!! Then Blu-Kote, keep warm and NOT NOT try to put them back until there is NO sign of blood or it will happen again for sure! Good luck!
