    One of my hens just bit a chuck out of the others eye on the roost. Do I have any other option then sell or cull the hen that bit her?

    You could try doctoring it with Neosporin (without pain reliever) or take her to an Avian Vet.

    Has this hen been agressive in the past or is this an isolated incident? You could seperate the agressive hen for a while and then re-introduce her. I hope the hen that got hurt makes a full recovery.
