We moved our 3 laying hens into the big coop where my momma hen is with her 8 week old chicks on Saturday. Keeping them seperated but able to see each other and putting them together for short visits while supervised and have them roost together at night and then seperated next morning just before daylight. Things are going pretty good except for the top hen, she has always been top hen but she is jumping on the momma and pulling out feathers and eating them! Momma hen is a smaller chicken and has a hard time defending herself. Top hen also is very mean to the chicks so I moved her back to the small coop where she was before. Is this ok to do for a few days or so and maybe when I put her back with the others she won't be so mean? She doesn't seem to mind isolation at all. I need them to be all together before winter so they will be more protected from the weather and can have fresh non frozen water.
