    Good Morning all,
    I am new to the site as well as raising chickens.
    I have 3 hens and 1 Rooster. 2 of the hens are Cochins and 1 Blue Silkie Hen and My Rooster is a Black Silkie.
    All of which a just sweeties, even Rooster.
    I do have some questions and would like to know where I can ask, post and look for help.
    Most recently, 1 on my Cochins has started "picking" on my sweet Blue Silkie chasing her away and not allowing her to huddle at night. She just trys to lay still and bury herself under the others.
    This just started a week ago and the Chickens are now 6 months old. Up until now they have always got along.

    Looking forward to being part of BYC Forum

    Big old welcome from Michigan

    They are starting to establish a pecking order. You might have to take your cochin out for a few days, put her in chicken jail if it get to aggressive.

    Thanks IMP.
    Mich-so separate the aggressive gal completely? both during the day and the night?
    during the day - like today, I am home and able to supervise, I let them out in the yard, and my poor little blue is hiding behind bushes and seems to be very careful when she approaches back to there little "yard" in front of the coop.
