    All exept one chicken are pecking one and being mean to her? They are all from the same batch and are 22weeks old. The one who's being picked on just got back from a show 4days ago when I started to notice it.What's wrong?

    Probably being gone lost her place in the pecking order.

    Since I don't show, maybe someone that does would recommend what to do.

    I'd suggest taking one or 2 of her buddies out at the same time and keeping them separate and putting them all back in together with the others so it's not just one bird..but that's probably not what people that show do [​IMG].

    They usually work it out in a few days, but keep an eye on her and make sure they don't draw blood or keep her from food/water.
