We were gifted a chicken from a friend because her flock did not accept her and she was always being picked on. She is smaller than the flock we put her with (ours are almost 13 wks) and they are really ganging up on her and letting her know her place. I'm not sure how old she is, but she is fully-feathered, and maybe a month behind ours. How long does this behaviour usually last? We are checking on her every hour or so to make sure she is okay. I have noticed a little blood on her comb, face and foot, and there are some feathers in the coop. The coop is small, though, and she has managed to find a hiding spot, but if they look for her, she's basically stuck and easy to peck. My heart says to bring her into the house to escape this, but then would she ever be accepted by flock? Do some chickens end up always being picked on? I understand there's a pecking order, but will she always be bullied? Thank you.
