Hi BYC I'm brand new here - I got my 4 hens just yesterday. I have a Barred Rock, Columbia Rock, RIR and Silkie. Everyone seems to be doing very well but the silkie (dd named her Sweetie Puff ) pecks anyone who comes near her. I can't even get past her to get at the feed and water without coming under attack. We got her and are getting a Cochin as "pets" for our kids so if it keeps up we have a problem! What can I do? I know that she's new and I understand that I don't know her background (bought her at a poultry sale - she looks well cared for - better than my standards who were from a commercial egg laying situation). I hope that she's more scared than mean or aggressive and that it improves with time. I'd like to help her along - suggestions?
