Please Help! I have 11 hens and 1 rooster, and they usually live quite peacefully, but I have a couple of questions. Okay so, to begin with, my chickens eat most of their eggs, but have only started this winter. They are all a year and nine months old- Nearly two years, and they seem to eat them overnight, since for a while, I would collect the eggs in the morning, about noon, four o'clock and occationaly at eight or nine. Does anyone have any brilliant ideas? And secondly, more importantly, 10 of my hens (not my rooster) have just three days ago started ganging up on Beth(Betharabah), one of the hens. They, thankfully, started (though it's not much to be thankful for) began when I was in the shed, by their room. (in the shed) I heard loud noises, hen noises, and when I got in there, I saw Beth on the ground, and I thought she'd hurt her leg, and that's why the other hens were being mean, but they were just pecking at her head, and I looked all over her, and there is nothing abnormal about her. I am keeping her secluded for now, but I don't know how long that will last, because it's supposed to get pretty cold in the next few days. I've noticed in the last week, that Beth wouldn't come down from the perches(for lack of a better word) unless I lifted her down. Would this have anything to do with it? Please Help Betharabah and I!!
