I added 3 younger ladies to my flock nearly 5 months ago and all was well. Integration was fine and one of our existing ladies looked to be at the bottom of the pecking order. But the altercations were really only when scratch was down. So she would hang back and we'd make sure to toss a little her way. Today my husband discovered 2 of the younger ladies bloody and brutally attacking one another. They are bloody and their combs have been pretty hammered. Only clue is that BOTH of them has slightly droopy wings. So - what does this mean? We think we will worm the flock as it's spring now (they've been laying for the last 2 months oddly enough). But now we're really worried. The attack was rather quiet. He was outside nearby and never had an audible sound to alert him to the situation. They will be in the coop during the day while we're at work and for now we're quarantining them tonight and tomorrow while we're gone, but what the heck caused this peaceful chickens to go nuts? These 2 were hatched together and everything. Though my co-worker I got them from mentioned that they are related to the "fighting" breed? They are tiny ladies, and super colorful and lay really light brown eggs - reliable layers... Are they sick and just attacking the weakest one? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks all!
