Yesterday I re introduced my broody bantam mama to the rest of the flock. She haid laid 3 eggs and seemed bored of her babies. I have left her 3 marans chicks in a separate pen. Although one of only two bantams in my small flock, the Broody Mama was top of the pecking order. She was the boss and I named her Bert for that reason. But since being introduced she is be picked on by even the most docile of chickens. She only seems to have maintained the upper hand with the other bantam. One of my Black Copper Marans is being particularly nasty to Bert, jumping on her full force. I'm letting them all free range for now, and poor Bert is just going off on her own. On the positive side, she doesnt seem to be missing her chicks and laid and egg today. My question is, has Bert lost her standing in the flock for good, and when will they stop hassling her?
