What do you do when your hens are fighting?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I have two hens that are trying to kill each other!? One pecked the other till she took her beak off! And I put up the one that was beat up and as soon as I let her out she went after the other one! Suggestions?

Rehome them or have them  as dinner.  The fighting sounds too severe to try and keep them.

I agree with drumstick dive, rehome at least one of them.

Hi and welcome to BYC - sorry that its not on the happiest of notes that you have made your first post. Seems like you have some pretty grumpy chickens but in my humble opinion, the advice given is the path i would follow - in fact I'd get rid of both and start again.

 

Good luck

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Are you sure they are girls? And do they have enough space?
