In the Brooder
- May 13, 2016
I'm having issues intergrating my 13 week pullets (4 of them) into my flock (3 hens). I have been doing the look but no touch method for 3 weeks with supervised meets which had the normal pecking order stuff. Now the pullets are free ranging but still living in a temp coop. The older hens ignore them for the most part. But randomly theu will chase them out of an area like the run or a corner of the yard. They arnt hurting the pullets other then a sharp peck they are just being bullies. I want to move the pullets into the big coop but cant until the bulling stops. Any ideas how to stop the bullies? which is the all three older hens.
