    In the last two, maybe three, days one of my EE's has decided that she is going to try to set her position in the pecking order. Problem is, she is only picking on the two bantams. She is being aggressive enough to pull out feathers. They are being rehomed on Sunday but in the meantime I don't want them to get hurt. I'm pretty sure it isn't a coop size issue as I just doubled their space yesterday and she will go after them even when they were in the run.

    sounds like she needs a time out in solitary confinement.

    If I do do a solitary confinement, how long should it be done?

    One of my bantams turned out to be a rooster. I can not have one. I've already found a fellow BYCer to take the pair. I didn't want him to go and be lonely so the other bantam is going as well. It isn't anything that either have done wrong.

    I was foolish and selfish when I had bought 2 straight run chicks when I knew full well that i couldn't keep a rooster.
