I am this close to throttling one of three black sex link hens that I've caught on top of the smallest Americauna two days in a row. While I know they are good layers, at the same time, I feel like I don't want to put up with repeated bullying behavior. Now I fully understand the Americauna's frequent impulse to fly out of the run, which is more than ample for 18 birds. Will there always be one bird who savages the others, regardless of their breed? That is, if I eliminate the black sex links, will one of the Buff Orpingtons jump in and take over their role? If I have only one breed, will one of the breed still become a bully to the extent that the black bird is now? The bottom line is that I am willing to sacrifice eggs for the sake of the health of the rest of the flock, at least until I can get a replacement but if it's just going to be more of the same even after I cull the bird, I probably will think twice about it. Advice?
