Subject: male suddenly turns on mate

Does anyone have advice on what I should do? I have a pair of quail that have been together for 5 months. The hen has already laid a clutch of 12 eggs (10 hatched). She laid 8 more, but those did not hatch. She's abandoned those ones, so no longer sits in her "nest house." I just noticed that on top of her lower back, she has been (apparently) plucked. Her skin is raw. (The babies are in a separate cage)
Do I need to pull the male out? Do I need to treat the hen's back?
I took the abandoned eggs out, hoping she'll retreat to her nest hideaway.
This is the first pair of buttons I've had, so I'm trying to learn.
Thanks for any input.
