I looked out at my small coop this morning to find my ameraucana totally beating up my poor buff orp. I have 3 hens and you can see my coop if you check out my page. Lulu (Amer) has always been the leader of the pack, but has never attacked my other ladies like this. I ran out and blocked the entrance to the coop putting my bully outside and the poor victim inside. What can I do? Things to consider: They were all chicks at the same time. Cold weather is just arriving. Egg laying began 2 weeks ago. I am panicing. I don't have the ability to sit home and ref this fight all day. I would be heartbroken if Lulu actually hurt one of my other hens. Will this behavior clear up or do I need to send Lulu packing?
