I'm so so so so so so so worried! Tonight I took out the wire barrier in the sleeping-only-coop that seperated my 2 13 week old Black Star chicks and one 25 week old White Leghorn (she's actually a bit smaller than they are). My other two Red Sex Link hens are NASTY BULLIES! Good thing we're vegetarians... . No, they're actually really sweet, just not to other chickens (they've been alone together for about 5 years). They all roosted. One of the hens, Redtail, who was closest to the babies on the roost, would lean over and peck Asha hard (SQUACK!). Then Sage (SQUACK), then Buckbeak (almost falling off the roost in the process. SQUACK!). Then she would stop, looking satisfied with herself, and do it again. . So I locked her in the Nesting Box. Luna, my other hen, didn't seem to notice the babies. She's known to be nasty though. (As soon as I locked Redtail in the nesting box, Luna got off the roost and slept next to her, so sweet). Do you think they will be okay? The other hens are muck bigger...I'm going to let them out at 6 this morning. What do you think? Am I doing it okay?
