I've got three 6-month BRs who have just started laying. This week one of the hens somehow cut her comb and the other chickens pecked at the blood before we could clean it up and put on peck-no-more lotion. Ever since, the alpha female has been pecking at her more and more aggressively - not just on the wound (which is almost healed), but all over her body. We hoped they would work it out on their own, but it got so bad in the coop this evening (the poor victim was squawking nonstop and trying to get away to no avail) that we pulled out the aggressor and are putting her in a medium-sized dog carrier (we have no other way to separate them). Does anyone have any advice? Should we keep her separate for a few days, or longer? Would that alter the pecking order? Thanks for your help!
