poor picked on hen...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

backyard chicken expert advice needed: 
We have four (1 yr old) hens and two (8week old) pullets who are all integrated. 1 of our chickens has some mild dominate tendencies but no major pecking order stuff. A friend of ours has a very picked on hen with a ton of balding b/c her flock is just so dang hard on her. We are trying to help re-home her and introduce her to our flock. She spent the day in the yard outside the coop. We decided to let them interact a little and nothing major happened, but basically each hen showed her a little aggressiveness in turn. I've never really seen any of our chicks display aggression, but the new girl did seem to do some "weak" posturing to the others-which may have provoked their animal nature stuff...They are separated again, and I plan to keep it that way for a while.
ANY thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Or perhaps, we should give her to another flock...

I'm not sure. You might get more answers if you post your question in the Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying or Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures forums.

I hope this helped!
