I have English Orpingtons. One of the pullets stands out because she is the only black one (they seem to run in same-color groups) and she is also a little bit smaller than the others. It is clear she is the bottom of the pecking order. She gets chased away from food and usually I end up having to spread food everywhere just so she can find a spot to get some without getting harassed nonstop. Often they can coexist peacefully but there is always some random pecking and pulling at her feathers. The other girls pull at her so often that she does not hardly have any tail feathers. Her tail just looks thin and wispy rather than thick and normal like the others. Is this a normal level of pecking order behavior? There is never any blood or anything. I just wish that at least one of the girls who could stand up for herself was at the bottom, but I know that's the point. Maybe I am being too tender hearted?
