    I've got the same exact problem my friend, except the aggressor is a little Buff Cochin Roo that has a serious little man complex and wants these hens for himself (and he's gonna kill em' if he cant have em;)

    If they aren't drawing blood, leave them to it. Make sure they've got plenty of space and provide an extra feed and water bowl so they aren't getting bullied away from the food. All you're doing by removing birds is prolonging the ugliness. Its hard to watch them work it out, but they've got to do it. Good luck!
