Hi everyone! Just took my first three chickens home ever on Sunday. My commercial brown (20 wks old) layer is majorly picking on my 14 week old Araucana and Speckled sussex. To the point of not letting them be in the same area of the coop or near the food and water, pecking out feathers etc. It's only been a few days but i'm worried I've taken home a rotten chicken Poor babies huddle in the corner away from her. Should I separate her or wait for the pecking order to settle? Any help is most appreciated!
