In the Brooder
- Sep 19, 2019
I have 4 girls that are 11 months old (buff orp, barred rocks)and we recently rescued 3 girls(Americaunas) that are 16 months old. They have lived side by side in 2 separate pens for 6 weeks. The last 2 weeks they have been free ranging together. Problem is that I have 1 Buff Orp and she will not stop harassing the new girls. Sitting on them and pecking and pulling out feathers, chasing them, keeping them away from food and water. Since she is the leader the other 3 girls are staring to do it too. I just built a beautiful new coop/run to house all girls but it turns into a chicken brawl within 1 minute of getting them all inside. What can I do??
