I jailed Hateful Helen away from the other 4 because she was being extreme in her behavior toward the 2 new juveniles I'm integrating into the flock. You can see the difference between "I'm going to terrorize you to show you who's boss" and "I'm going to pull every feather out of that lovely young back of yours". That was Hateful. She's now in jail - in the tractor by herself for a week now. She's not happy. How long do I keep her there? Will 2 weeks be enough to give her an attitude adjustment? The 2 juveniles have been doing well with the other 2 adults although they are still being kept in check. I looked in last night and they were both huddled facing the wall sitting on the poop board under the roosts. But before the early evening was out, I'm sure the older birds let them up on the roosts. It's almost like a college sorority freshman hell week. I feel sorry for them. But I had read on this board that separating out the aggressive bird will rearrange the pecking order. So how long is she going to be a jail bird???
