Hello All, About a month or so ago, I had to pull Margartet from the flock because she was absolutely trying to peck right into the head of Aunt Francie. I had another hen, Lily, die back in May, and this is when it started. For awhile, I had taken Aunt Francie and brought her into the house so she could heal. When I took her back out, Margaret went after her again, relentlessly. Just shredding her comb and wattles and ripping all her feathers out. So, I brought her back inside to heal and the same thing AGAIN when I put her back out. So, I decided that Margaret needed to be the one removed and she has been in a little makeshift cage alone in the yard, and she gets locked up alone in the shed at night. So a couple days ago I decided that I needed to reintegrate her back with the others, because it's not like I can continue this long term. Eventually winter will come and the setup she is in will simply not be enough to keep her warm. When I put her back in the run, she was fine for a short while, pecking and scratching around, pretty much minding her own business. Dear Aunt Francie on the other hand was absolutely mortified that I had brought Margaret back and tried to keep away from her and remain incognito. After about 20 minutes, Margaret finally spotted Aunt Francie and started right back to her old evil ways - she immediately jumped on top of Aunt Francie and started attacking her viciously!!!!! So, she's back out in her chicken jail AGAIN! I have no idea why Margaret hates Aunt Francie so much! They got along fine for two years, with the very minor occasional check and balance. But this has become down right violent, and I know that Margaret will kill Aunt Francie if left alone with her. She seems to leave the other two girls alone. Helen is at the top of the pecking order, so she keeps Margaret in her place. And although Margaret will peck on Doris Mae sometimes, she doesn't appear to be out to get her like she is with Aunt Francie. This makes me sad, because Margaret is generally very sweet and friendly with me, she is healthy, and she lays an egg almost every day at just over two years old. I just don't know what to do, but it appears that reintegrating her back into her flock will be impossible. And I'm sure she must be so lonely seperated all by herself. I've been thinking that I might need to rehome her to someplace with a bigger flock, but I'm not sure how to go about doing that. Please, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
