Hello, I have a flock of 27 chickens, three of them are easter eggers, the others are RIR.
I have searched for an answer, but came up short.
Two of the three easter eggers seem to be able to handle the RIR aggressiveness. However, it seems to be running one on empty. She runs around the pen very scared of all the others. I understand that there is the pecking order, but she is beyond scared. She appears to be molting too. Now she does not sleep on the roost with the rest of the chickens, she sleeps on top of the nesting boxes by herself.
Any ideas on what to do?
I also have 16 month old chicks, I am not sure if I could put her with them. She does seem to be a bit broody.
