We have nine chickens in our flock, six of that are almost six months old and recently started laying, The three others are about six weeks younger two wyndottes and one easter-egger. We were keeping the younger ones together but separtated from the others for their own safety. Then the wyndottes started pecking the EE badly to the point of an open wound. We separtated them from the EE'er and were recently able to merge them into the main flock after a rough few first days of them getting picked on badly. It actually reminded me of that TV Special where they had so-called tough teenagers in a real prison listening to adult convicts..."Scared Straight". Anyway whenever we try to mix our nerd EE'er with any of the others she gets horribly abused and you can see she then panic's and runs blindly. I'm starting to wonder if something is wrong wth her, she seems to often keep her beak open and seems kind of "not right" we all have started calling her "Gooney Bird"...I guess what I'm asking is what's the best way to get the other birds to accept her into the group without killing her first? She is also very tame and friendly toward people with all the one on one attention we give her. I hate leaving her in her small coop by herself all day while the others freerange. Anyone know of a Chicken Karate school in Florida we can send her too?
