My flock comprises of a Roo (Pintu aka Sultan), Black (Alpha hen), Sparrow (bantam game hen), and Pauline (Sparrow's sister). Earlier in January, Sparrow started laying eggs and she was only 5 months, and after about 12 eggs she went broody. For 2 weeks she stole eggs from Black and Pauline and lay on them. So I bought 2 chicks (Peaches and Cuba) and introduced them to her. She accepted them. Now my problem is with the flock pecking order. Sparrow and Pauline were very close friends and that was until she had her babies, she beat the living hell outta her after becoming a Momma. Now Black is entirely another story, she is still the Boss. She harasses the chicks and Sparrow, now how do I demote her Alpha hen status. BTW, Black is a breed that never goes broody, one more reason why Sparrow should be the Queen Bee. I have heard separating helps. Do you guys have any other suggestions? Please no flame baits! Have a good day ya'll.
