    Clean it of and put a little neo on it. You might have to separate her until it heals a bit. They'll keep going after the blood.
    It will heal and the feathers will grow back.

    We tried that and they still peck her. This has been going on for almost 2 weeks. She is very sweet and avoidant of the others when we let her out. Is there something else we can put on her head that the others will find distasteful but won't hurt her or the others?
