Please help!!! Within the last week my hens are rampaging against each other, I saved the one girl and quarantined her bc I caught the others pecking her viciously, then today, I found one of my girls dead in the nesting box from being pecked, her entire rear was bloody and gaping with wounds, i don't understand what is going on. I know they bully sometimes and I figured they were bullying the younger one (that I saved) bc she was younger. The one I found dead was one of my original hens that have been around the longest. But to be clear she wasn't old she was hatched in March. What should I do? I'm afraid this is going to continue and all my hens are going to die.
