I have one mumma barnvelder with her 6 week old chicks and a new mumma barnvelder with her week old chicks. All our hens free range but they fight all the time. Any advice would be appreciated.

What can be done is to provide cover patches, each with its own little feeding station. I also make so roosting areas are at least 10 feet apart. I often make so there is a feeding station per broody hen. Knowledge of acreage is also helpful. I am running two broody hens on about 2 acres currently. I make so feeding areas are at least 100 feet apart. During most of the day they are more than 100 feet apart while foraging except when I appear with feed bucket.
