    wow, I have a hen who was adopted into my little pack of three hens. They pecked her unmercifully. Now i ended up with three new teens and she's beating the crap out of one of them. Why do they do this? Even after they've been picked on themselves? I get there is a "pecking order" but ....... gee wiz. Why pick on just one of them?
