Hi, I am hoping someone can give me some advice. We have 11 hens. 4 red sex links from TSC who are 23 weeks old and have been laying everyday for a few weeks now. We have one adult hen (not Sure what she is, white feathers and legs, red comb, smaller then the reds, but a year old or better, lays a jumbo white eg. Adopted from our neighbors). Those 5 seem to bully. Then I have 2 Black Australorps and a Buff Orpington, 21 weeks old. Finally I have a Dominique, an Aracauna, and a Sicilian Buttercup, 19 weeks old. The SB, we call "Simone", is the runt. She coders under Robin, our Aracauna and Domino, our Dominique. She hasn't been eating well, and she always seems to be in a cowering position, wherever she is. She will eat and drink if we are distracting the others (except her protectors, Robin and Domino). However, she is half the size if Robin, and 1/3 smaller than Domino although they are the same age. I will post a pic of them in July when they were all the same size, sitting on ou r dogs back! But, the reason I am concerned is not just her small size but also she seems to stand with her head tucked into her breast, sometimes turned to the side. I started taking her out and feeding her, giving her vitamins and electrolytes because she has been having diarrhea. Today we decided to put her in a pen inside the pen. She would run away when the others would pass by. We have put her own food and water in with her. We are hoping this will allow her to grow without worrying about being bullied by the other girls. Does anyone have any suggestions or insight they could pass along?
