I've a juvenille flock of two older BA pullets, now laying, and 12 about to lay partridge rock pullets and 3 juvenille PR roos. This week I've had one BA pullet end up with part of her comb gone, and today I found a PR girl - one of the fiestier - with a notch in her beak. There have been no predators and there's nothing in the yard, can they really do that to each other? I have a mature roo in quarantine now - I was hoping having an adult around might settle them all down, but he's stuck there until he is done "cooking" lol. Here's Algernon About the partridge pullet: Do I do anything about the little bloody bit on her beak? They're free range all day - it's not like they're cooped up. What else would distract them from each other? And YAY we have eggs! Oh I have missed homegrown eggs. Ain't going back.
