Hi all. Ok. I had finally got my babies into there new pen, and my beautiful loving babies, are now assassins. Got 25 chicks at the same time, and two week, I split them up so they;d have more room. Bad idea. Now my Bantams were seriously getting pecked more than I could bare, so i took the terrified 5 and brought them back in. Now they are fighting among themselves, and the other birds out in the pen are figuring out whos boss. Since I observed they seemed to be keeping the lower on the chain birds away from the one supply of food and water area....i thought id outwit them by putting three more in there. Ha!!! So there. I've been gone from their sight now for about a half hour, and getting ready to go take a peek. Ok, question....I only reintroduced the babies yesterday., pulled the bantams out late last night,....something tells me to just make two sides to the pen, and quit visually separating them. Ideally having a side for the less aggressive birds, and the bullies. then as pecking order continues, moving the less bird to the nicer bird side, and the new mean bird from the nice side back over to the mean side, and keep doing that until the power bird, has been reduced to the less bird, and like a newbie, keep fingers crossed, that the challenges will be less severe among the integrated flock. Sure sounds good in theory....but anyone think its possible?
