Hi. I help out looking after a very small flock and two new hens were introduced. They were isolated first and slowly integrated. One was taken in by the flock and the other was pecked mercilessly. We thought we would let them work it out and then it would be fine but over the past few weeks its only gotten worse and now the rooster pecks her until she's bloody and her entire neck is bare. We are keeping her isolated with her own food and water now but we really don't have the space to keep this arrangement. Does anyone have any ideas or advice? Thanks so much!
