I have 3 hens: Barnvelder, Buff Orpington, and Easter eager. They are 2 years old and have been together from week old. All 3 are molting. The Barnvelder has gotten very ugly toward the Buff. She will go into the coop at dusk and will let the EE in but not the Buff. Buff ends up roosting on the top rung of the coop ladder. It is too chilly here to leave her out. Tonight she was “screaming” until I went out and put her in coop through the back door. Barnvelder approached her but when I said NO she turned and went away. I hate to interfere but I cannot let her be out at niget! I also don’t want them in habit of me putting her in every night! Any suggestions?!
