So we have kind of become a chicken rescue. We had a friend that can no longer keep her 4 pet chickens call and ask us to take them. We have been keeping them side by side with our 13 for 4 days and let them free range together today. The 4 new ones seem to stick really close together and we didn't notice any problem while they were free. I'm pretty sure the polish crested is the bottom of the new flock. When we called them in for dinner and to be locked up for the night everyone was doing the pecking order thing except the Polish. She was trying to fight. We have 2 Easter Eggers that are the bottom of our existing flock. I think they would probably like to move up but kept they "Sorry I offended you. I'll run away now" attitudinize. I don't want to loose anyone if the Polish "attacked" one of the top chickens. According to my research Polish are skittish because they can't see. My only thought to help this problem would be to use scissors and give her a "hair cut" trimming the hanging down feathers so she can see. I would watch and see if that helps her try to establish order instead of fight. Other than making her less pretty will a "hair cut" hurt her? Any other solutions?
