While out cleaning up the coop today, I watched my 2 SLW chase down one of my EE's and jump on top of her and peck her. I've been trying to figure out what's going on with 5 of my 6 chickens losing feathers by their butts, but this particular EE is worse and I've been finding broken wing feathers and it's starting to travel up her neck now. I think the one that is not losing feathers must be protecting the EE somewhat bc she kept running to her. It seems to be mainly one of the SLW that is attacking more than the other. My husband's work friend has chickens and said he would take the worst one and see what happens at his coop. I may have to give the other SLW up too if that doesn't seem to work. My questions are - will removing the problem chickens help me, or will the order just shift so someone else becomes the bully? Also, are there any other ideas out there, other than killing them myself, b/c I'm having a hard time with this - these SLW's have always been more skittish so I'm not as attached to them, but I got these guys as my pets and I feel horrible taking them from their home. We plan to take the bully to the new home tonight at dark (I'm told this is the best time for them to adjust so if not please let me know!!!), so as much advice as possible in the next couple hours would be very much appreciated!!!!
