We are really seeing this now-the black hen who just showed up is starting to act up and this morning I was woken up by squawking in the hen house-she is picking on one of the original flock. I let them out in the enclosure and it looks like she drew a little bit of blood. No open wounds though. LBH (little black hen) proceeded to chase Barbara around the yard a bit today and I still could hear some more noises, however, Barbara was still eating and drinking and grooming. I found her tonight not in the pen with the others but tucked in by the back door, so I put her in the dog kennel for the night. I think she is upset, not ill but has decided to isolate herself because LBH probably wouldn't let her in the coop. Is this normal to self isolate? Thanks, MB PS If I wanted to open a thread in other parts of the forum , how do I do this?
