As some of you have read I've been having real problems with picking. Well, it turns out that one of my favorite hens is partially responsible. She's a buff orp. I have since changed her name to "rough buff." OK, now what? I can't kill her. That is simply out of the realm of possibility. She is sweet, kind, and gentle with me and everybody else except other hens. I don't have any extra room in the coop on the floor to make a separate cage. However the front of the coop is 8' high sloping back to 6' in the rear. I could put a box up there near the ceiling. Would that be possible? Would she tolerate being in a 3'X2'x2' cage? When the weather warms I have places outside to segregate her. But until then.... She's been inside with me for 3 days!
