    can someone advise me what to do to help my black rock hen. she has pulled out all her feathers on her underside leaving her skin red raw and looking extremely sore. Is there anything i can put on it to put her off pulling out her feathers and make it heal up? she is otherwise healthy, eats well, and up until this week laying regularly. she is two yrs old. Any advice would be much appreciated.
