    I have six rescue battery hens ... I have them for about two weeks now and they are settled. Now one of the less developed or smallest due to the fact she has less feathers on her is subject to a lot of bullying attention of one particular hen. The night time roosting areas are separate but the chicken run when they are confined to it offers no escape for the victim. Is getting rid of one or the other the answer to this problem. Separating them to daytime areas is not possible.
