So my three hens have been doing just fine until this morning. I have a black a brown and a white. Black is the alpha of the group. So far just normal pecking order stuff.
But today I went out there and white and brown are trying to lay eggs. White is in the nesting box all ready to go but the black was standing over her pecking relentlessly and digging claws and just being totally aggressive. The brown was sitting next to the nesting box getting ready to lay and then black went after her as well. White now has a bloody wound on her comb.
What to do?
