Chicken Bully!! Help please! 😲😲😲

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi everybody! One of my hens has been getting very frustrated when I put them inside of their coop at night. When she gets mad,she takes it out on the other hens. She's bit my other 2 hens twice every night because that's just how mad she gets. It's really starting to get on my nerves, but I don't want her to hurt the other hens. But I also don't want to get rid of her since she's a good layer. Any suggestions? I've thought of isolating her in a different area of the coop every night. Anyone else think that this might work? Thanks for any advice!!🐔🐓🐤

Chicken society is sort of like 'mean girls' in high school.  If she's being a bully and you have the facility, pen her away from the others in the evening.

So agree with @sourland, in my case my leghorns were the bullies and also the best layers, pinless peepers work for my bullies for few months then taken off when peace is restored.
