I have three adult hens (I had a bad year and lost some) and am integrating 4 new pullets. Integrating new flock members is always a turbulent time, but one of my year-old hens is being especially spiteful and brutal, attacking my 7-week pullets with extreme vigor. I'm afraid she might cause real damage. It's very interesting because she is at the bottom of the adult pecking order, and when I integrated her in last year was the most picked on--so I guess she is the most threatened by newcomers. I love how these moments reveal the psychology of the birds...but I digress.... I'm thinking of isolating the bully (Violent Violet) and letting her rejoin the flock in a few days. Any other tips?
