Ok. I've had 7 chickens for 2 years they all grew up together..are wonderful pets. Last year I bought 5 RIR's but only 3 have made it to this point. They are over a year and they rule the roost. If one is busy picking a fight or doing whatever..another steps in. I have put my rescue hen and 6 Golden comets that are 6 weeks in with all of them. They have been there for about a week. These RIR's are basicly tormenting them whenever they feel the need. Last night Rosy was chasing them around for no reason in the coop when it was bed time. All my older chickens went to bed and so did one other RIR. Rosy and Lucky were down on the floor still and Rosy was chasing them around. I yelled at her to stop, she did for like two seconds while giving me the "stink eye" then when I turned to walk out she started again. I showed my dominance over here in front of everyone and she went off into the corner and was eating off that feeder but then Lucky started in doing the same thing. The chicks are staying out of everyone's way, these two chickens are picking on them for no apparent reason. So here is my question. I hate these RIR's and have no issue with eating them for dinner, maybe with killing them but not with eating them lol. If I cull these two bullies will the other RIR start in or do you think the older ones will start on the babies? Right now the older ones could care less. My plan was to keep these horrid RIR chickens till fall to get more eggs over the summer but eventually they are going to stew anyway. The chicks arent bleeding or anything its just "I have nothing to do so I'll pick on them cause i want to" Its so random. She will be eating outside and the chicks are in the coop away from everyone. Then she will just run to the coop and chase and peck at them. Its so annoying I might cull before any replies! I hate her!! Never thought I could hate a chicken but she has some anger issues!
