    [​IMG] Sometimes if you remove the hens from sight of the flock, when you re-introduce them they have to start from the bottom of the pecking order. Doesn't always work, but may be worth a try.

    [​IMG]maybe you just got a bad batch of them. If they don't get better you could rehome them or send them to freezer camp and have a few meals.

    Welcome to BYC. Chicken society and the pecking order can be cruel - think 'mean girls' in HS.
