Hi there, This is my first time on this website. We are chook novices who have five chooks, who free-range around the garden all day, and are locked up in their coop of an evening. The two "boss ladies" are really seriously pecking at the others, in various degrees, pulling their feathers out, and it looks really sore. We have treated them for mites, just in case it had something to do with the behaviour, but there has been no change. When I'm out in the garden with them, I see it happening but don't know what to do about it - chasing the bossy chook only works when I'm actually there. Any advice would be helpful.
