I have 2 Hens who have recently started jumping on another hen like roosters. I know they aren't roosters as they are laying eggs. They have started this after I had a rooster in the flock but the roosters gone now. Is there anything I can do to stop the 2 girls from jumping on the other 1? They are only jumping on 1 girl in particular and she has started loosing feathers. I don't really want to use a saddle so is there any other options?

Can you remove the jerks and separate them for a few days so they drop a few pegs in the pecking order?
How big is your set up?

Dimensions and pics of set up would help immensely here.

Removing a bird, especially a cock/erel, from the flock always creates some changes in the pecking order.

There's plenty of room to separate them. I have a designated jail/recovery area in the coop that I could put them. Pic below
