Hello everyone, I hope you are having a good day. My flock consists of two groups, my 26 week old Wyandotte hens: Susan, Penelope, and Lailah. The other group, 23 week old mixed breeds: Sunflower, Henrietta, and Pat. Recently Susan and Penelope have been picking on my mixed breed pullets. At first it was nothing serious, the occasional peck or chest bump. However, now Susan and Penelope are biting my mixed breed's combs so aggressively and often that they are bleeding and tearing. I love my whole flock, but I won't accept this bulling behavior. I would love advice on how to help solve this problem, Thanks!
What can I do to make Susan and Penelope less aggressive?
What can I put on my mixed breed's combs to help them heal?
