Help! We started off with three eggs hatched together. Three Easter eggers. One was a rooster. We integrated two more (buff Orpington & RIR), and then two more (golden comet & Black Sex Link), and there was some establishing of pecking order that wasn't pretty, but it didnt last long and they are a close group now. 18 weeks ago the rooster was killed by a hawk. We hatched four of his offspring who are now 15 weeks old. Three of the four are Easter Eggers (sex undetermined but two squat when I pet them, and one will stand up to some of the older ladies), and one is an Easter Egger-Buff Orpington mix who is definitely a hen and smaller than the other three. The four hatched in February get along well together and have been living separate from the older six. The pens are near each other - 4 feet apart and have been for the past two weeks. Yesterday we integrated them all in to a 6x8 coop with a 12Lx6Wx7H pen. The last two added to the original six, the comet and the BSL are picking on the smaller Buff-Easter mix and have made her neck raw and bleed. Its been 48 hours and I have now separated them again. The poor hen being picked on is the sweetest thing who just cuddles in my arms terrified. The other three are clearly intimated as well and have been running from the others. I have been scouring the threads and picked up some ideas on creating another pen inside the larger run for another couple weeks, and then when I integrate them creating a higher spot that the new ones can escape to. Any other thoughts or advice? I assume I need to let the little one heal again before I try anything - even the pen inside the run? Help. I would love any advice! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!
