New owners worried about one of our hens. Our 6 hens hatched May 1st. We didn't have any pecking issues when they were in the brooder through last week. I came home from work and our ameraucana's tail feathers were all pecked out. She was bleeding on both sides below the area where the tail feathers were. Per some BYC posts, I put some neosporin on it but the other hens keep pecking at her. She is definitely the smallest hen and I wonder if that has something to do with it. We have also tried adding more protein in to their diet to see if that helps but we haven't seen a change in behavior pattern. Plenty of space in the run (we built it to hold 15 hens) so crowding should be the issue. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
