Here's the situation. I have an adult Jersey Giant (alpha) and a Buff Orpington. I've been working on introducing three 3 month old BO's to the two adults for about 5 weeks now. Letting them see each other but not get to each other. And then two weeks ago, I turned them lose together and it was going quite well. The BO would lunge at the babies if they got too close but they quickly learned to keep their distance. Well, the BO is really struggling with their existence. She's been the bottom of my pecking order her entire life and was bullied quite badly last year and I think she's just not about to go back there. And I get that. But now she's starting to stalk the babies and pull out their feathers. She stands there all sweet and innocent when I'm around. But if I spy on them from the window, she's quite mean to them. And when she goes after them, the JG sometimes joins in. So what would you do? Separate them again for a while longer? Or will that just prolong this adjustment? Leave them alone to duke it out? I'm not seeing any blood but it concerns me when she pulls out feathers. And I can tell when she's been tormenting them because they run and hide behind me and have this whimper/whine. Breaks my heart. I COULD put a peeper on her but I really hate to do that. And I refuse to trim her beak which has been suggested. Just had a horrifying incident with that when I was a child and that's simply not an option. I do have a very small run I could isolate her into for a time. But I'm not sure that's going to "reset" my pecking order since they are still babies. I think they are going to be at the bottom. My JG will be the top and the BO will be number 2 inline. So my thought is to just let it work itself out. The biggest issue I have with this is that they are sleeping in separate quarters and I'd like the babies to be in the house which is warmer and safer at night.
