Thread Starter 
Hey there, i have 2 road island red bantams (females) and 2 japanese frizzle bantams (1 male 1 female.. about 3 weeks ago the japanese frizzles were introduced to our other 2 road island red bantams.. but the have a problem the original hens have made a group with the male frizzle bantam and have left the other little hen out. This little hen is petrafied of the other hens and always gets her crown attacked by them the rooster she came with is fine and wont attack her? Why wont the other hens accept her its really upsetting to watch 😔😔😔😔

She considered an intruder and an outsider, they are trying to drive her out. The rooster apparently prefers the other girls. Best to always introduce chicks, or at least two hens at once. If they aren't drawing blood I would let it play out, it is how chickens are.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.
