Hi All, I have three hens that are 8 months old and up until recently they really always seemed to enjoy each others company within their pecking order. Recently my "Ameraucana- EE" has been displaying some violent behavior towards my Barred Rock hen when treats are given. It is usually a snack of oatmeal, B O sunflower seeds, mealworms and the EE will jump on the head of the BR and peck at her comb. The BR is bigger and heavier than the EE, but that doesn't seem to matter. I understand that there is a natural pecking order and don't want to get in the way of mother nature. But I am at a loss for what to do other than to stop giving treats (they usually get them 4-5 times a week when I need them to go to their coop mid day or if it is snowing out I sprinkle the ground so they have something to do) I was so saddened when it happened in front of me today and the EE drew blood on my BR's comb. Is the EE hungry? I find it odd that it is only her comb and it is only when it is treats- not during regular feeding or watering or perching or sleeping. They get along fine all other times. Any thoughts on what is going on and how I can get her to stop pecking my BR's comb bloody? Thanks everyone!
