I have 4 Buff Orpingtons and 2 Barred Rocks. I had to take one of the Barred Rocks inside because she was being picked on and had a fairly large bloody wound.
All of the chickens were pecking at her at that point. Now the other Barred Rock is showing signs of being attacked. Only one of my Buffs does not have any pecking
evidence. I don't know what to do. Right now the second Barred Rock is in the house also. They can't go in together because the the second one pecks at the first one
and even tore her comb recently.
Here's my questions. Do I remove the obvious bully from the coop area and leave the the three Buffs that are still uninjured? I can't see a time when the Barred Rock
that was originally hurt can rejoin the others.
My coop is larger than necessary and they have a 15 x 30 fenced in run for the winter. The snow has prevented them from being able to get around much.
Can anyone help me with this problem. Thank you.
