In the Brooder
- Apr 30, 2012
I have one or more egg eaters in my small flock of 8 (4 Rhode Island Reds and 4 Comets) I don't know who it is, so I end up going out to the coop many times during the day to check for eggs...trying to get the eggs before they do. There are 3 comets who have missing feathers at the neck and I thought they were still molting, today when I went out there, I caught the one who has all her feathers, pecking at the necks of the other 3. So, now I know that I have a bully...and maybe she's the egg eater too? Please, any suggestions...is there a way to stop her, should I isolate her, should I remover her from the flock? These chickens are 2 years old and I have 8 new babies chicks (1 week old) that are still in the house.
