Our flock have been pecking fluff from each other all summer all my hens have bare butts. As the molt started I had to separate one that started first since she was being pecked of her new growth. She is now the prettiest of the flock but I cannot put her back into the flock. The others attack her climbing into her back pinning her down almost like cocks fighting. I am almost at the point of culling the whole flock and starting a new flock this spring. What can be done to stop this behavior? Also what can be done to stop this behavior from starting again in a new flock if we do start over?
