    I needed to remove one of my females from the pen due to her fighting and picking on the others. She is by herself in a separate pen and I know that they are best in a colony. I don't know what to do so she is not by herself. She is really aggressive. Any suggestions?

    Thanks as always!

    Oh no! Sometimes females can be vicious. Maybe she wants her own man [​IMG] I would separate her from the others but keep her near. She may over come the hormonal stage.

    I may have to do that with Cricket, my English White. She has lost her fluffy little mind lately.

    I have one like this. I trimmes it's beak flat, and cut its toe nails. She is still mean, but atleast my other hens aren't bald anymore.
