Other posts I've been reading for advice say that if there is an aggressive chicken who is beating up on others, (or even just one), that you should remove the aggressive bird. What do you do if four chickens are plucking and pecking and spilling blood on just one bird? I live two miles away from my coop and when I went to feed the flock, that's what I saw. I made the decision to take Sommer, (the hurting one), home. I asked for advice about this earlier and people said to try Blue-Kote. The more I read, I decided that Blue-Kote was meant to heal wounds, not change behaviors. Another person suggested Vick's Vapo Rub. I tried that and then brought Sommer back to the coop. Not even two seconds inside, it started all over again. I was supposed to run about 10 errands that day! You know those bumper stickers that say "God is my co-pilot?" Mine would say, "My chicken is my co-pilot," because for the next 3 1/2 hours, Sommer perched on the backseat next to my son. She even went for an oil change! While I enjoy Sommer's company, I hate picking up the poop in the porch where Sommer stays all day. She has been at our house for four days now. What should I do? I also wonder if I should bring the next lowest sister in the pecking order over as well so that Sommer has a friend. I'm also concerned that with dropping temperatures, (it's about 7 degrees now), that if I take more birds out of the 4 x 6 foot coop more heat will be lost for the three that are left to huddle together. Opinions please!!!!
