So I’ve been trying to reintroduce a hen who got hurt and had to be removed from a five hen flock of just sisters. Two of them, the hens at the bottom of the pecking order, have accepted her. But the top two keep bullying her and will keep her in the coop all day so she can’t eat. I’ve put her in a seperate crate for a few weeks in with them. That didn’t work. I took the two angry ones out for a few days and then brought them back. That didn’t work either. I’ve sprayed them with water when the peck at her. Didn’t work. I even just put her hen and hoped they would work it out. Nope. What do I do! She looks so miserable and all this is becoming so stressful and I don’t have the energy or time to deal with it all. What should I do? Put her in a seperate coop? Do something with the aggressive ones?
