    A couple of my Ameracauna hens just will not be left alone by the other hens.
    I have isolated her/them until she/they heal up and get the feathers back.
    But as soon as they are all together it starts all over again.
    Is there some kind of deterrent, or are we going to have to build another run and separate them permanently? Ideas anyone? Thanks! [​IMG]

    i think if you let the hens go in the coop and you sit with the hens in the coop the other chickens will know that you will protect them and they will leave the hens alone
