We have 12, 7-8 month old Golden Buff hens. One of my girls went broody and we had to put her in a broody cage ( we called it chicken jail..haha ) to finally break her. However, the flock will not accept her back. They pick on her and have now started ganging up on another one of my girls too. Gertie ( the ex-broody) and Gobbles ( my husband named her and thought it was funny) both have to spend their days in the coop sitting on the roosting bars while the other girls play in the run. I had to put them all outside today because I am cleaning the coop and my poor two girls are in the corner under the coop because the other girls keep picking on them. How do I get the other girls to accept Gertie and Gobbles? Gobbles is also missing a lot of neck feathers. I am hoping that it from molting but I am not so sure that it is. Any advice would be appreciated.
