    Can you put an area around the hen so that they can see her but not get to her? Try that for a week or so...

    Sometimes I think they may just not get along.Or they might see a weakness in her that you don't and therefore pick on her. If nothing else works, I would rehome someone.

    Hope someone with more experience in these matters can give you a better option! Good luck with it and Welcome to BYC!

    Thanks for the input. I can separate them but still have visual. I'll give it a try for a week. At least she is not alone she has her sister. No more andalusians. They are too aggressive and flighty and not at all cuddley. I was wooed by beauty. They are great layers though.

    I have 8 andalusians and they are my meanest chickens[​IMG]. If they are tormenting some chicken I put them in a different area for all the other chickens. This really is the only thing you can do.[​IMG]
