Sometimes chicken jail is necessary. And I hope Olive learns her lesson!Uh, oh...trouble in Chicklandia!
Today, I discovered Olive (EE pullet) bullying Gigi and Fleur (Faverolle pullets) by picking at the pin feathers on their feet, drawing blood. I cleaned up their feet and used a bit of Neosporin. I'll keep an eye on them. As for Olive, she's in chicken jail. A sturdy dog crate with everything she needs. (She's throwing a temper tantrum right now.) I'm keeping her in the carport tonight, but will place the crate in the run tomorrow. She's not getting out until Gigi and Fleur are healed. Then, we'll see if Olive has learned her lesson. I hope so!
