Bully Hen! Advice needed ASAP - Page 2

post #11 of 12

I thought it was pretty clear Seamus was the cockbird...lots of info but well written.

 

Agrees with oldhenslikesdogs, separate the bully but just behind wire adjacent to main coop/run.

Might be hard to do with tiny coop/run in OP's avatar.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

Thank you all!!!!!   I know I gave lots of info.... wanted to put all the facts in to give as little room for error as possible. (Sorry...science teacher here....!)   I have put the bully Blynken in a quarrantine cage inside the run.  Noddy was nervous at first, but now has settled down. Blynken is also calm.  Seamus (Roo)  seems puzzled... goes up to her and looks intently at her as if to say "Hey...whatcha doin' in there?!?",,, then wanders away.  I last saw him cuddle up next to Noddy, both preening.  All is calm.  

 

Thank you thank you.   I'll leave them like this for several days.  I feel hopeful.

 

 

Now.. if someone can tell me why my male cockatiel is in love with my big toe and sings to it,  that would be grand!  LOL!!!!!!  I have some strange birds!   :D
