Hope this isn't too long...long story short.... We had our 2 Rhode Island hens, the RIR rooster and 8 baby Wy's. I was happy with that but my hubby wanted more chickens so he bought 14 more. Any how, the last couple of days I have noticed that the new girls are beating the crap out of my baby Wy's!!! I mean knockin them around real good! They are grabbin them by the tail, wings and neck and swinging them around...the whole time the babies are screaming! They also jump on them, keep them corned and then they gang up on one...it's absolutely horrible! Yesterday I had to feed the babies their treats in the coop just so they could eat and not get knocked around! Our reds NEVER treated the Wy's like this and haven't since. I have noticed that my Wy's will sometimes run to the reds for protection...the new girls are scared of our reds. I spoke to my neighbor and he told me about the peeprs I could get to help with 'the bad kids' but I don't think my Wy's can wait for the peepers to get here. Does anyone know what I should do? We have PLENTY of food and space....food & water in both the run and the coops and our run is huge...so I doubt it's a space thing. It just seems like my new girls have decided to be bullies and aren't stopping for anything! Now I know chickens establish a pecking order but this type of 'establishing' is getting waaaaay out of hand...in my opinion! If I can't get an answer soon I'm going to eat all of the new girls....and that's NOT a joke!
