After much doctoring, moving hens around, making an extra coop available, and cutting number of hens together, one of my 1yo RIR went after her coop-mate today and picked her apart pretty much the same as they did my Chickeepoo in January I'm ready to take the sharp end off of the beaks of at least one of those hens so I don't have to cull/get rid of them. Someone had posted back in February to use sharp kitchen shears and take a little more off the top than the bottom beak- would new, sharp dog toenail cutters (sterilized) do the same thing, if I don't have sharp kitchen shears? I'm sure there's a tool specifically for this but I don't have it, and time is ticking. I already let one hen go to my friend's flock to keep her from getting torn up by these other hens, and another to my neighbor; now these two are starting again on each other. These hens are good layers but rotten cell-mates I'd like to hear from anyone who has had to do this, and how you did it. Thanks.
