We have around 10 chickens, and the smallest one, a black and white bantam hen, (the name of the breed escapes me) decided to live away from the nest for about two months before winter struck and we modified the coop. We made a big caged in yard, so we collected all of the chickens and put them into the coop. Ripple, the bantam hen, was the most reluctant to go in the coop, and she is pecked whenever she goes near the others. Currently, she resides under the nesting box so that she can stay away from the other chickens. She has a rooster of the same breed that we got her with, when they were about 9 months old. I am not sure if he pecks her or not, but he fits in perfectly with the rest of the chickens and does not care for her any more than the others do. Does anyone know what the problem may be, and how to fix it, or what to do in general? If you need any more information, I will be happy to provide it.
