Hi, I don't get this and am hoping someone might have insight. About 2 months ago, 1 of my two 13 month old hens started bullying my other two hens. Maybe it was a food issue but that made no sense to me since they had the same feeder setup etc for nearly a year. (I did change around the feeding system so they're happier on that front now I guess). Then I came home after a long weekend to my nearly 5 year old having an actively bleeding comb, bruised head with missing feathers around the comb. Within the week or so I witnessed both my 13 month olds attacking my 5 year old aggressively. This was quite upsetting to see and all this behavior has really stressed me out. The vet said the 5 year old was healthy other than she was developing cellulitis from the wounded comb. But even after the comb healed my 5 year old was attacked. During this time, I did my best to keep them separated, tried to build a second coop and so on. Then all of a sudden 2 days ago, the two 13 month olds started being friendlier though my 5 year old was still scared -- of one of the others -- but kept insisting on being in the same enclosed area as the others. Just not close to them. The past two nights she tried to go into the roost and they kicked her out. Now tonight, she was allowed in and to stay. What's up with this? In the meantime, I decided that because this has stressed me out so much, my backyard has been turned upside down, and that I'm not enjoying keeping chickens anymore, it'd be best to re-home them. I have plans to re-home the two 13 month olds this Thurs. I figured I'd keep my 5 year old as she's a bit abnormal, no longer lays eggs (though even if she did, they couldn't be eaten because I gave her medications), and is very docile. I have been concerned she'll be lonely because she did seem that way when her super broody sister was still alive. But I don't see that she could integrate into another flock without being severely injured. And like I said, I don't want anymore chickens. Now, I know people say they keep their hens in their homes -- how's this possible? They poop everywhere and track it everywhere! I don't see how a diaper bag thing can stay on them either considering my chickens flick their tails and wag them like dogs at times. I feel stuck. Thanks for any thoughts.
