We have a 9 month old hen.We think she is at the bottom of the pecking order.Recently she got a bare spot on her wing and my sisters have been applying "no peck" and
vaseline to it.How do i stop her from getting hurt?

I use Bluekote, it dies the spot blue-ish purple which makes the spot less attractive to the other birds, plus it's an antiseptic. It was $5 at my feed store. I've used it on the horses, dogs, cats, as well as the chickens. Just don't get it on anything you don't want to permanently dye purple. It will not wash out of clothes and it will take a couple weeks to wear off your hands. but it works great!

If "no peck" stops them from pecking the wound, then it's working for you. If you can figure out who is the worst one about doing the pecking, you can try taking her out of the flock for several days then returning her. She will have to re-enter at the bottom of the pecking order.

When you seperate on of them they panic.What will stop them from pecking her not just on her wound?
