    How long does this newbie get picked on ?She is younger than the others but bigger. One of my hens gets on top of her and pecks her all she can do is hide in the corner.

    until she stands up for herself. my advice if you want her to live, is cage her up in the coop with the others for a little while. that way they will see her everyday, but can't get to her. otherwise they will continue...someone always has to be at the bottom of the pecking order
