I have 8 hens. 3 BO, 2 RIR, 2 Bantam Cohins, and 1 EE. Our EE is at the bottom of the pecking order. She gets her feathers pecked. We converted our rabbit hutch into a coop, plus added a run on and enclosed underneath the hutch. It is located next to the big coop and run. This new mini coop + run is only temperary until our EE's feathers grow back. We feel that since she is the only one of her kind that is the reason she is getting picked on. Although, her behavior is really annoying...so that could be causing the others to pick on her. If we were go get another EE and put in in the temporary coop/run with our EE...do you think they would bond and then our lone EE would have a friend and the other's would not gang up on her? We don't really like our EE's behavior. She runs away and is difficult to catch. She also makes an icky noise all the time. I have read that other folks say their EE's are friendly and nice, and maybe our EE is acting skittish because she gets bullied. So...what do you all think about adding one hen to our EE in the temporary coop for probably about a month. We would then introduce them back into the flock? Too risky? A good idea? I don't want two skittish hens.
