In the Brooder

I need help with some flock problems. My dominant hen is a bully!! She beats up any chicken that gets in her way. I need a hen that will act like a rooster. I have a tiny chicken and a chicken bigger than my dominant hen, but the bigger chicken, an Orpington, is too sweet to show my dominant hen who is boss. I need a hen that plays the role of a rooster, but doesn't beat up the other chickens. I need my dominant hen to not be dominant hen. My littlest hen is getting stressed out because she is singled out and picked on the most. She also has BumbleFoot in one foot and is recovering from the other surgery. I have tried separating my dominant hen, but she comes back in as boss no matter what. PLEASE HELP!!
