Well, I finally finished building the coop and added a run to it. Used a kit from "Hay Needle" I think is the name that says it can handle four birds. I decided two birds is gonna do it. Small back yard. Well two days ago I finally picked up two hens. Finally. Funny how exciting it is considering I have raised pheasants and quail in the hundreds. The larger hen was pecking and chasing the smaller one and actually held the small one down and it appeared was trying to kill it by pecking intensely. The smaller bird wouldn't come out of the box and the bully was making sure of that. So deciding that chickens are cheap enough to replace, and feeling bad for the smaller bird. I made a nice dinner out of the larger one. I was rewarded that night with my first ever egg!! With all that, before I replace the jerk, I am hoping for some advice on how to avoid this from happening again. Maybe in the way they are introduced or whatever. Hey, any help is welcome. And thank you in advance.
