Hi all. My small flock of five hens was doing well until yesterday afternoon. I noticed one of my buff orps walking behind sl wyandotte pecking at her. I was horrified to see what she had done to the other hen, right about the tail feathers. It was a bloody, lumpy looking mess. And the weird thing is, the wyandotte didn't even act like it bothered her! Now, earlier in the week I saw a larger buff orp mounting another buff orp. I'm not sure what that's all about unless hens are like dogs in showing dominance, but this was not the same hen. This was my middle buff orp doing the pecking and she just woouldn't give it up. I did not see any blood on the other birds' beaks. So I ran for the blue-kote and gave the slw a good spray on the affected area. It's just getting light and I would like some opinions to go with as the day develops. All things being perfect, the buff orp will leave the slw alone. All things not being perfect, if I were to cull a bird to restore order, would it be the henpecked bird or the troublemaker? Do you get rid of the bird being eaten, or the bird doing the eating? They were all doing so well after their molt, too. The weather had eased up and they were all getting outside. Everybody was laying again.... I just don't understand it. And I plan on throwing some burger in with them today to try and occupy the one. I'm hoping for the best, but planning for the worse. And separating one out is not an option, but I suppose that would be the ideal situation, to get the pecked hen out of there.... Hoping for some input on my situation. Thanks!
