Hi everyone, 3 days ago I adopted 2 ex battery hens. 2 of my hens died in recent months, so I wanted to get another 2 to bring my total back to 4 hens. My Bluebell is quite a bully, I was expecting that she would be. She's been occasionally pecking at the new hens during the day, but they free roam my entire garden so they have plenty of space to avoid crowding each other or fighting for food. The first night, my bluebell pecked the new hens out of the coop, so they slept in my shed instead, the second night there was no pecking at all, and all 4 slept in the coop. Tonight, once again there was pecking and my new hens left the coop, one went into the shed to sleep and the other is sleeping in some bushes behind my compost bins. They're still very nervous so I'm trying to keep handling to a minimum for now. I know it's still very early days, and the pecking by the top hen is to be expected, but I 'm just wondering at what stage would this normally stop? And if it doesn't, would it be okay if I let the hens chose where they want to sleep? Or should I get a separate coop if necessary? Thanks in advance!
