Bully hen


8 Years
Nov 13, 2011
Recently our Welsummer hen has been ruthlessly attack our speckled Sussex to the point of a bloody head/comb, and even her perviously friendly Dominique flock mate has joined in the bullying.

Since yesterday when the injury incident I've let the Sussex have free roam of the yard as her save haven, then put her on the roost that night next to a docile flock mate.

Is there any recommended methods to discourage this behavior? A friend mentioned a bitter, purple ointment, but wanted to know if its worked for others

She's also a very stocky, and large breasted bird, would that also be something to consider?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
