I honestly don’t know, these girls have been together since October, no issues before. Idk if they are moody because the run has been wet due to the rain we have been getting. We also have not been letting them free roam this winter because they run into the streets, and last summer we lost half our flock to a fox. My run is 6ft by 6ft and we have a manufactured coop that recommends up to 10 birds and we haven’t surpassed that. I am at a loss.Any changes in the housing? Are they cramped for space? What do YOU think is at the root of it?
Originally it was one bird and I thought something tried to grab her, then I found the male wounds on others and assumes it had to be pecking... I just don’t know why.I have heard if rats get in they can cause damage to roosting chickens. I would think it would be more like their feet, just guessing here. Hopefully someone who has seen this before will show up and we will all learn something.

I am guessing they are cramped for space. The coops you buy are notorious for overstating the number of birds they can hold. How big is it in feet by feet?
