The dominant hen of the group is the rooster's favorite, and has not been able to regrow her feathers as a result. So today I switched them, putting the dominant hen in the single coop, and Henny Penny back with the others. Henny isn't too happy - the other hens have pecked her and the rooster has been overly attentive.
I'm hoping Henny will get along well if I give her a little time, and that Missy #1 will regrow her feathers - she's not happy, either since she's alone.
Does this sound like it will work out in the end? Do chickens work out their differences or should I expect Henny to always be a target? Will Missy #1 get her feathers back, or will she have to wait till after the next molt?
Thanks for your thoughts!
