i just acquired 8 EE pullets to add to my flock about a week ago. not sure on their age but they are still pretty young and small. my existing flock is a mix of about 8 full size hens, 5 bantam cochin hens, and 1 bantam cochin rooster. everything was going fine until yesterday morning. we have to lock up our chickens in the coop at night because of predators but they have access to a large fenced run during the day. my 10 year old daughter is in charge of letting the chickens out in the morning before school but she forgot to do that yesterday so instead of being let out at about 6:30am they were all trapped in the small coop together until the afternoon when we got home. the poor EE pullets got picked on pretty bad. they are all missing all the feathers on their backs now and it looks red and sore. 2 of them got it a lot worse and are missing pretty good chunks of skin/flesh on their back and tail. i grabbed one of our cat crates and took the door off and filled it with grass hay. i put it on the floor in the corner of the coop under the roosts and nest boxes. that way they have a place in the coop to hide from the big girls if something like this ever happens again. i caught all of them yesterday afternoon and sprayed Blu-kote real thick on their backs and tails. (now i have purple polka-dots all over me lol) i did this for 2 reasons. to hopefully prevent any infection from the woulds but also to make all of their backs and tails dark purple instead of bright red since chickens love to peck at anything that is red. is there anything else i should do for them? i feel horrible that this happened to them.
