    Do you have a rooster? Is someone pecking at her?

    Do you have a rooster? He may have broke them off when holding onto her or the other chickens are pecking her.

    Well, that makes more sense... I've never seen anyone (of my 13) look like this... I was worried it was something else. Thank you...
