We have had that happen here also. Seems like if there are too many roosters or not enough hens to keep the roosters busy they really can mess up the hens. We have 30 hens with two roosters and that seems to be a good number so one hen doesn't get picked on too much. I currrently have one hen recovering from the same thing. It does heal up and I have heard to put an antibacterial ointment like Neosporin on to help it heal. If your hens have all the feathers pulled off their back you might have to separate that rooster or do away with him! Chicken soup is good on these cool nights! LOL Good luck and keep us posted!
