    If the skin is raw I would clean it with betadine or soap and water, and apply neosporin ointment. Are these chickens new to one another. I would put her in a cage in the coop so they stay familiar with her. When letting her out she needs to be watched, and any bullies isolated for a week. BluKote spray would be good to put on her wound when she goes back out--it will coat it blue so it doesn't attract more pecking.

    Thank you. I have ( had ) them separated, but now the young ones are "jumping the fence". I have her in the house now and will keep her in here for awhile. Thanks for telling me about bluKote. I will get some at Big R tomorrow. I'll keep ya posted. thanks again.
