on Tuesday we got 6 White Black Tailed Bantams and the two roos are just flat out mean. they attack the other chickens and the chicks. they keep to themselves and attack anyone that goes near them. WHAT DO WE DO!?!?
They're still chicks. Theres 6 in all. 2 roo's and 4 hens. I think they're a few weeks older than our 3 week old chicks. They scare all 25 chicks! They're piling to keep away. They're also in a large area. IDK? I took them out and had them in the coop, and they hide & run off ANYONE (chicken wise) that comes near? Will they snap out of it? They are susposed to be thechickengoesRAWR's 4H project! Help!!!!
I've got to laugh at this one. I have a hen who as a chick looked different from her counterparts and was quite aggressive. We assumed she was a roo and named her "Dinner". I was stunned when Dinner turned broody this spring. She is still a pill sometimes. She has had to be removed from the flock for a few days to stop her bullying. It really works to isolate the bullies for a few days. When they return to the flock they've been taken down a peg or two, and they stop bullying until they re-establish their position in the hierarchy.
