Keep chickens from pecking each other. Put a little vinegar in their drinking water.

If you have a problem with chickens being pecked then put talcum powder on where they are pecking, it really works it cured mine in a day and the feathers are starting to grow back fine now. GOOD LUCK!

I have 1 hen that is being pecked by 4 other hens. All same age, from same
flock. This just started happening when the weather got below 30F. I think it's
because they were bored spending so much time in the coop.
Here's what I've tried: 1Tbsp vinegar/1gal H2O, FlockBlock(a huge block of
seed that's now in the coop so they can peck away), fresh veggies hung in the
coop (broc, celery, cauliflower, etc), and Scarlex scarlet oil spray wound
dressing (antiseptic, germicidal, fungicidal).
