We have a silkie roo and two hens. Some of the EE's have started pecking the two silkie hens badly. Just feathers so far but I am worried it will be worse. Both hens have been hiding on the others. We had already decided to move the silkie hens out to their own coop but then snow hit and we ran out of time. They have never had a problem before, it was just I wanted to free range the rest and not the silkie hens that are my son's pets. I guess all the cold and locked inside time is making them bored. We had actually bought a small coop a couple of months ago and boy am I glad I did. We moved that coop outside our back glass doors this afternoon. Tomorrow I will get the new coop ready and pick up another heat lamp etc. Then move them over tomorrow night. On one hand I am excited to have them outside the back door. I can watch them all the time when they are outside. Silkie tv On the other hand I am bummed we could not wait until spring. I was originally thinking I would move them and let one hatch some eggs. Not now in the middle of winter.
