Ok, I traded my older amber link hen for one born in March of this year. The older one never laid hardly any eggs and we never knew she was that old b/c we were duped by a dishonest farmer. She's much happier where she is (in with 50-60 other amber links!) but the NEW amber link is considerably smaller than my two rhode island reds (and the older amber link) and they were picking and/or chasing her around the 18 sf coop pretty much all day yesterday, to the point where she "escaped" through a small opening I had for the water! How she got through w/out hurting herself is a mystery, but she can't any longer. They all seemed ok roosting together thru the night, BUT I have yet to see her come out of the roosting area today. Feeling sorry for her, I put some feed/water in the roosting box. She immediately went after the feed but wouldn't touch the water while I was watching. I just now, as I am typing this, saw her come out for some water outside and my two reds were on her immediately. She grabbed water and RAN back into the roosting box! What do I do? I thought since she was older than they were (they were born in May) that she wouldn't take any "crap" from them and obviously I'm wrong. Will they all settle down eventually? I don't want her hurt and they are pecking her hard enough to make her squawk! Help!
