Our flock consists of 3, 2 year old hens and 3 pullets that were integrated 2 months ago. One of the pullets is a very mean RI Red. Mean to me, not to the others...every time she pecks/attacks, she breaks the skin. We are working on this behavior but obviously she's not my favorite. She is NOT at the bottom of the pecking order amongst the group, I don't think. We have a very timid Salmon Faverolle who has taken that position as far as I can see. But the RI Red is getting beat up by the older hens. They chase her and get on top of her to pull feathers out. She screams and runs away. They do NOT do this to the other pullets. They have never even acted this way amongst each other until the RI Red was introduced. The RI Red goes for the treats first even when the big girls are around. I don't think the she knows her place and she's not interested in knowing it. Has anyone had a "mean" hen get picked on? I am wondering if she is going to be persistent and "win" or if the beating up is going to get worse and she will get injured. Only time will tell. Any comments welcome. This is my first time integrating and I am all ears. Anything I should be doing to prevent this behavior or should I just let them be? ( No bloodshed, yet) Thanks!!!
