    I've got a mean hen that can't get along with anybody but one rooster. Today I put a hen in the same coop, with a fence seperating them. They just about killed each other through the fence!!! I thought hens got along well. What's wrong with mine??

    She has princess syndrome! Is very common! Try adding 4 more roosters to the pen and see how fast she would like some relief.

    Take her out for a few days or a week and let the roo find a new favorite, then put her back in. She'll be a little more humble.
