    I have a young BSL that is the victim of some pretty hard pecking.The older hens peck her hard on her back and one of them jumps on her like a rooster. I have 3 BSL all of them look very much alike to me and one of them is laying but I can't catch who it is. Will this awful behavior finally wind down? They have not drawn blood yet but she still limps(slightly) from an injury a few weeks ago. By the time I see it it is all over but the crying and running but it is making me upset. I don't want to have to resort to behavior modification unless I have to. Any suggestions?
