We have a sweet darling who landed at the bottom of our flock's pecking order. She was denied access to food, became very thin and stopped laying, but continued to brood on the clutch laid by the others. They did not take this well and brutally attacked her one day about six weeks ago. We brought her in and have nursed her back to full health. She is even laying again! We tried reintroducing her now that she is more robust, but they pinned her down within minutes and she was not willing to fight back. Reluctantly, we have to face the fact that she needs a new home. Please reply if you're interested. Thank you!
