We introduced 6 more hens to our flock of 4 existing hens and a rooster. They had a day or two of establishing pecking order and all of them seem to be doing ok but one. One of my hens, who is not even at the top of the pecking order (she's like 3rd down) will not leave one of the new hens alone. The poor thing is a nervous wreck and only comes out of the hutch long enough to eat and drink. The aggressive hen (Daisy) will come from the other side of the coop just to jump on her and pull her feathers out. Any suggestions on helping out the new girl? Thanks!
