In the Brooder
- Sep 25, 2016
Hi, I have five 1 and a half year old Faverolles. So far they seem happy and healthy. However, I recently had a hen become broody (this isn't the first time this hen has done this). I don't have any eggs to hatch, so I'm trying to break it by picking her up and setting her outside for 10-20 minutes everyday. However, when I do that, I let my other hens out as well and one of them comes over and starts trying to attack the broody one, to the point where she draws blood. The hen that's attacking has been fairly aggressive, although this is the first time that there's been blood. Does anyone have any advice on how to stop this? I don't really have another coop or tractor to isolate the aggressive one, though. Any help is appreciated!
