Hen being picked on

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi there
I am a new backyard chicken owner. We have four hens and three are picking on one and pecking her and chasing her around. Any advice on how to help? I hate seeing her scared.
Thanks everyone!

Hello!

Welcome to BYC and the coop! There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to joined the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around BYC. Is there a ring leader? Is there blood being drawn? I wouldn't worry if there is no bloody sores. You could also try a isolating one or two of the bullies. Then reintroduce them in a weeks time. It sometimes helps to reset and fix the pecking order. That's my two cents. I wish you luck with them.
Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
