I have a rhoad island red chicken, and an americano and 2other birds,
But the RIR is ATTACKING my americano,
By attacking i mean chasing her around the yard and plucking feathers off of her.
What can i do to solve this?
I have a couple of girls that chase one of mine around and peck her butt. It's not constant but it happens often.....Also I noticed that one of the other hens had a feather from one of the others in her mouth. Is this serious or just establishing their pecking order?
its only around food and I haven't seen any blood yet. I have been watching them a lot.
I have no way of separating them and the thing is it is my moms bird (the RIR) and she wont believe me she thinks I over react but when I see it 5 times and im seeing feathers from one bird (my Americano) and the evil RIR is the largest the next is the black Austrolopre then my Americano then the other sweet RIR.
any other suggestions?
