My chicks are about 2 months old.. so they are out in the coop. They have there own separate area at night (as they cant reach the roosts) but my lone hen shelly picks on them! every time they eat a peice of grass in the run she runs over and pecks them.. She is a bantie, so it wont be long till there as big as her.. But in the mean time ... What do i do?! Lately i have been letting her free range, and the chicks run around the run... And i put her in at sundown. Here is a pic: Meet "Pavy" Pavarotti My escape artist! Somehow found this hole (in our huge newly constructed run! How did it get there!??!?! ) And escaped! Dont worry i got her here she is escaped! With my hen free ranging Meet Frank Sinatra Freddy Mercury (who is a girl) Lillian <3 And of course... SHELLY!
