    I moved 3 of my marans to the temp community pen, and all the other chickens all started to peck at their feathered legs. I figured that after a while they would figure out that they were just feathers and not eatable. I checked on them this morning and their feet were bloody, and the others were still pecking on them, I had to move them back to the small pen. What can I do to get them to be together. /shift button don't work, sorry/ It will be a few weeks before we will have perm pens, and I need to get the marans outside. Any suggestions.
