Woke up this morning to find one of my Welsummers dead in the coop. Her head was all bloodied up and a large section of her side was pecked away down to the gastrointestinal area. All were fine and happy on their roost before I closed the coop last night. The 9 girls have all been together for 11 months now with no problems whatsoever. I know for a fact that she was the lowest on the pecking order, but I never thought it would lead to an overnight murder. If anybody has any theories or explanations, please fill me in. Thanks.
