    I don't know. I ordered her from my pet chicken. She is smaller than the other chicks I got. They are all different breeds. Plus she's not very nice to anyone. She's mean I've had to separate her for about a week she was bullying 2 (black cooper Marans) that are a week younger than her. The poor things couldn't even eat or drink she had them hiding in a corner. I put her back in today and things were better but we will see how she is tomorrow. I'm ready to rehome her.

    Wow. Mine is not mean. I also got her from my pet chicken.
    Hopefully things work out. I'll post some pictures of mine tomorrow.

    Thank you, then Pearl it is. She's being a lot better still this morning. Hopefully chicken jail worked. All my other chicks are super sweet even the older hen my son got me.

    It sounds like she the dominant pullet in the flock, so her behavior isn't too abnormal. But if she gets bad again, an extended trip to a separate pen can help a lot.

    I'll be putting her back in chicken jail if she gets bad again. I'm hoping she's a 1 time offender.
