    [​IMG] Yes, same thing happens to my little silkie hens when I get them up to go out for a quick bite and get some water; the others want to pick on her, peck and run after her, etc. [​IMG] So, I have started just scooping up the setting hens and taking them out with me to their pens and staying with them while they eat a bit, just DARING any of the others to bother them; seems to be working!
