We have 3 older hens and 10 days ago we brought 3 14 week old girls into the flock. They seemed to be getting along reasonably well--just what we would consider chasing and minor pecking. This morning we found one of the young ones dead in the coop. She had her head sort of between the food shelf and the wall. My question is what would she look like if the older ones pecked her to death? Feathers missing, blood, partially eaten or what?
