Any solutions to try for hens pecking each other? They are not crowded.
That's just part of being a chicken. Once their pecking order is established it will die down. Be on the alert however for any injury...chickens are cannabalistic and will peck to death a bird that has an obvious injury such as a prolasped vent or is bleeding. If it gets out of hand, you can always isolate the bully and a new pecking order will be established. When you reintroduce her, chances are she will not be at the top dominant position.
It's been going on for months.
