Hello, I've a brand new little flock of 3 POL chickens who have only been together since Sunday in our back garden setup. One of the ladies (Rita) has taken to chasing and pecking my other two girls, particularly the smallest one (Penny), which had been in the same run as her when I bought her. This morning I went to let the ladies out and I noticed that Rita had a dripping orange beak - it turns out she had eaten Penny's egg (though this may have been broken in an attempt to escape Rita). This evening as I was rounding them up in to the coop for the night, Rita was running at Penny quite viciously and as I shut them up I could hear Penny darting around trying to escape the attacks. When I've been out to check on them, Rita is the only bird sitting on the roosting bar, the other two are cowering in the nest box. I hadn't noticed the bullying this bad until today really. The girls free range over half our garden during the day and have access to grit, cider vinegar in their water and plenty of foraging entertainment. As they've only been together a short time, is this just Rita asserting her dominance? Will it settle? Is there anything I can do to help Penny and Pam?
