    Weird neck movement from hen

    Change of hen behaviour

    My 2 year old hen started pecking at my 6 month old hen (she is her mother). It's not a hard peck, as the hen doesn't scream or run away. She actually just stands still and then all move along. Could she be jealous or is she stating her dominance?

    Has my bullied hen become the bully?

    I’ll try to keep this as short as possible so not to waffle, but don’t want to miss out any details! I had a young hen, Rihanna, being badly picked and pecked by one other hen, Barbara, (and sometimes her accomplice) in the summer. Rihanna’s poor tail feathers were almost non-existent and as...
