I have 6 hens we recently lost our rooster to wry neck. Ever since one of our Easter eggers has been brutally going after one of the silkies. The silkie is what I call our dumb blonde she is easy going and has no idea what is going on never starts trouble and is often left behind while foraging. I thought it was new pecking order but it is unending and severe. The EE pecked her till she was bleeding on the back of her neck so had to come in to the house for a couple days. I finally returned her to the coop at night so she could join quietly. The next day after work I went to check and her neck had a huge gaping wound. In the house for 2 weeks this time when I put her back out I kept her in a dog kennel for 24 hours. Let her out and the EE went for her big time so I shoved the EE into the kennel for 24 hours but it is cold here and the night temps kept me from doing it longer. The EE seems OK until I walk out to check on them or feed them the minute she sees me she goes after the silkie brutally. I like the silkie more but I don't want to have to get rid of the EE. I don't know what to do I am afraid to go out and start trouble for Pru(silkie) but I am also afraid to not check on her. How to I end the bullying?
