Hi Everyone, Im here because Im desperate on what to do with my RR attacking one of my Americana's. She has pecked most of her back neck feathers off! They have been together for 2 years and now this is starting. I dont know what to do. Im afraid that she wont make it through the winter with out her neck feathers. When i go into the coop to let them out in the early AM it looks like a animal got in there! there are feathers everywhere. This has been going on for a few weeks now.
Even my dogs are terrified of this chicken. I have to say that last year the dog got her neck and ripped it open. I sewed it up and she has been fine. But now she is just a nasty chicken.
Also, today I saw this new behavior in the bet up Americana. She put her head down, was moving it back and forth and was backing up. It looked like a cowarding behavior, but the other chickens were not around her when she did it. We have 4 chicken al ltogether and bought all as chicks.
I am going to make her some kind of neck protection but not sure how to do it. In the mean time what can I do?
Any help will be sincerely appreciated!
