Hi everyone. I have 3 white leghorn hens and 3 red sex link hens. Got them as chicks, all at the same time, a little over two years ago. They've all gotten along really well, although there was a clear pecking order, and every once in a while there would be a tiny scuffle. A few months ago, one of the white leghorns got sick. I'm still not exactly sure what was wrong with her, but her stomach was extremely swollen and she was listless. I came out to the coop to find her crouched in a corner while the other 5 ladies were pounding on her. (She had been near the top of the pecking order prior to this.) Her head and comb were so badly injured that I barely recognized her. So I removed her from the coop, cleaned up her wounds, and put her in a smaller, separate coop. I was sure that she would not survive, although I nursed her and hoped for a miracle. Lo and behold, two weeks later, she was good as new and laying again, so I attempted to move her back in the coop. As soon as she stepped foot in the coop, the ladies started beating on her again. So I put her back in the separate coop, but put it right next to the bigger one in hopes that they would get used to being around each other again. I week later I tried to put them back together again, but now the other hens are beating up on her AND another leghorn. I decided that they just needed to figure it out, and as long as they weren't really injured, I would let it run it's course. Well, almost three weeks later, they are still beating up on and bullying these two leghorns. The two who are being bullied hide in the hen house and only come into the run if I'm around. They're both losing weight and look terrible with their bare/scabby heads. I really feel like I messed up the whole pecking order when I moved the injured hen out, and now I don't know how to make it right again. I've even considered putting lavender in the run to see if it would have a calming affect on the girls. (I know...I'm losing it!) Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
