About 10 days ago we bought 6 pullets (age 7-9 weeks) from a farm where there were very overcrowded. I should have said no when I saw how they were kept but I was exhausted from traveling and had a van full of excited kids. Well... there are two of the 6 that are mega-bullies, pecking others till they bleed. We currently have: Storm (biggest bully, a silver laced wyandotte) inside the house in a large bin, Cookie (EE, also a bully) in dog crate in the garage, Phoenix (golden laced Polish who is picked on by most of them), her buddy Sprinkles (EE, seems to protect Phoenix), Bella (EE who is super mellow), and Pixie (Barred rock, physically the biggest and top chick) in a very large dog crate in the garage. FYI - they all get time outside in the yard, but now that we know which ones are bullied the different groups go out separately. They were all housed together there at the farm, and it feels like everyday I'm separating the injured from the bullies. Last year we bought 6 chicks that were a day old and we had ZERO problems with bullying & injuries. I'm running out of places to separate them. I thought because they've all been together all along this wouldn't happen. Should we get rid of the bullies?
