    I know that chickens naturally choose one bird to constantly pick on and abuse, but is there anything that i can do to stop this besides seperating them? I currently have them seperated, but i would like to put them back together if i can do it safely.

    If u put them back together, try and do that on a neutral playing field... AKA, an area where neither bird has established any dominance, if u can...

    Sometimes it works to separate out the biggest bully, the head hen, for a few days. It rearranges the pecking order.
