I need help....I have 6 hens. 2 leghorns came first. then came the 2 reds. These 4 came from the same hen house, are all laying almost daily and seem very content. Then I brought home 2 pullets. They are buffs. They were almost full-grown then (2 months ago) and have now started laying. Everyone was getting along fine until about 2 weeks ago when the leghorns started ganging up on my pet buff. She is very friendly, likes to be held, petted, eats out of my hand, etc. We can't understand why they are picking on her so much now. Her comb is almost gone and as of yesterday, she's losing her feathers on her head above her eye. No blood there yet but the poor thing!!! We don't really have a way to separate them in this cold weather so we're just not sure what to do. I'm thinking it's time to eat the leghorns but they lay eggs every day, even in 5 degree weather, so I really don't want to. I read somewhere on here that once there is blood, the others will pick at it. How do we cover her head so they won't see the scabs? do I need to bring her in the house? The other buff hen has some blood on her comb tonight but not as much. is it time for stewed leghorn? Thanks for any help you can give me.
