I have, well, had three young chickns: two pullets and a six week old roo. My husband decided to put them in the coop today. One Golden Comet pullet is dead. I rescued the other Golden Comet pullet before the bigger hens made mincemeat out of her. This was before we left for a few hours... The roo lost 1/3 of his feathers, but he's all right, relatively speaking. I'm really shocked that my chickens were such bullies. RIP Dakota.
