I recently took this hen because her own flock was almost beating he to death.. and I have one hen who I adopted and was obviously treated like a pet prior to my getting her. so Basically I had to keep the adopted chicken in a pen in the basement after the first snow realizing she was gate standing waiting for me to come back at night instead of heading to the hen house with the rest. So I though Great Rain needs a friend and my other 4 usually pick on her so this would be awesome if she had her own buddy.. Not so much.. I've kept them separated for weeks now. waiting #1 for the new one to heal up and #2 rain to get use to her.. this morning even though Rain is in a large dog kennel and Jen is in the bigger pen ( dog kennel inside the pen) Rain got her.. and when I let them out together Rain immediately goes after Jen... Jen Seems healthy... But Very timid she just puts her head down and takes it? Jen seems to want to be near rain but Rain is being just as mean as Jens original flock?? I'm wondering Could it be the size or her cone? or could she be deaf? I'm just not getting it? also is there something I can do to protect Jens head? and stop Rain from going after her head?? I've had chickens for many years But I've never seen anything like this? I understand the pecking order .. But never had it be this bad.. this is why I'm wondering because it's her cone Rain and the other flock kept going after.. could this be the issue?
