I cured a hen of bullying.

Only had the two hens out when I was there. When bully attacked l picked her up and put her straight into a special yard l had made. She Could see the bullied hen but couldn't get to her. Left her for a week at a time. After 4more episodes she soon learnt to be nice. Hope that helps. Bathurst
Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. X2 on drumstick diva. Sometimes they get cured for a while and then later revert again. If this happens with your hen, you can always use pinless peepers on her. If your not familiar with them, you can see them at https://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com/pinless_peepers.html. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your hen.
Hello there and welcome to BYC!

Wow, great!! So glad you were able to adjust the bully's attitude! Nobody needs bullys in the flock. I have a few I need to work with pretty soon as well.

Enjoy all your poultry adventures and welcome to our flock!
Glad you have joined us.

I think your behavioral adjustment will work. They can be trained both by positive or negative reinforcement. Bully will learn be bad and get locked up ain't fun
