So I just noticed the Red in the picture last night was almost like bullying the black one. It was wierd because this was the first time I had seen it.. Normally when they all come out of the run they do like this wild chicken run all through the backyard, wings out flpping its funny, and sometimes they would chase one another, just briefly.All 4 of them would do this. But last night when i was giving them some seed it seemed as if the Red didnt want the black one eating them. She would almost herd her away. It would start out with the red waking up to the black and standing straight up, then the black would get pecked, bwawk and run off, the red would chase and do the same thing.. This morning when I was giving them some veggies and water, it happened again.. The Red almost wanted to keep the black away from the goods. I have 4 birds the black is a week older,then came 2 reds and a wels, they all got along great until the past day, the other red and welch are fine with the black still, its just the one red. The black recently started squatting, i guess thats what it is, she almost does a little jump to this stance with legs like wing length apart. Just the past 2 days, maybe more shes been doing it when you walk by her, I dont even have to touch her now. And if I do she presses back against my hand on her back. So im thinking maybe its because she is going to lay and the other is jealous? Or maybe the hiarchy is changing? I dont know but out of them all the blacks the only one I like. It really seems to me that the Red doesnt want the Black to be part of the group, or at least be near the water or food at the same time as the Red. Its also only outside that it seems to happen, when they are in their run and pen they are fine. Anyhoo im wondering whats going on, why this behavior is happening, especially at this old. Could this be preventing egg laying? What might have triggered it. Do I just let it happen? So far ive kinda chased the Red around the yard, silly but it makes me feel better thinking she might know what it feels like to be chased. I really like the Black one, she runs across the yard to me whenever I come out, its too funny. I dont want to make a seperate coop and half off the yard because they cant get along so if one has to go I know what im eating this weekend.
