Hey y’all, i have two hens that are kind of rough with eachother. Both are around 22/23 weeks old. One is smaller then the other. I was holding the smaller one in the hands and the bigger one came over and bit the smaller ones ear really hard. I got the smaller one away and i tried to almost shame the other one. A little while later, i heard this god awful screech coming from the run, i’m not too sure what happened but when i went out, they were almost circling each other, like dancing. Does anyone know what kind of behavior this is or why they do it? Is it jealousy? Should i separate them? I don’t want to have two hens fighting and pecking at eachother.
