    How about that for a new business venture. I have 4 hens in my little backyard and they have decided to start pecking at one another. One pecks at one and she in turn pecks at another.

    Now they have a HUGE run, get lots of protein, have stuff to keep them occupied. They are just naughty. I complained about this on Facebook and someone replied with a BRILLIANT suggestion. I need to rent a rooster for a few weeks to set them all straight.

    I know, that would be a disaster from a bio security standpoint, they hens would FREAK, yaddy, yaddy, yadda. But in theory, I thought it was a great idea.

    In the mean time, my biggest meany is sporting a pair of peepers to get her to think about her evil pecking ways.

    Now you know where they got the phrase Pecking Order [​IMG]

    Sometimes you just need to take the top meany and put her separate in "time out" for a few days
