I currently have six 11month hens. 1 BR, 1BSL, 1 RSL, 2RR, 1EE all standard size. I am having problems with my head hen (BR). She's gotten very agressive and half of my flock is bald because of her (EE, BSL and RR). I"ve tried the cabbage toy and adding vinegar to their water. We just seperated the BR from the flock yesterday, she is super human friendly and a great bird, she won't be showing up on our plates. We have been considering the option of getting a bantam silkie rooster to balance the flock pecking order. Would he help the flock maintain balance? I have a friend who has a 3 week old and I know that he's nowhere near being ready to go in with them. I'm not currently alowed more hens per my landlord, but she is willing to let me get a rooster (long story). If I opt to do this when should I introduce this lonely baby to the flock? Should I brood him alone at my hose so he gets used to my family, or should I let my friend brood him with his brothers and sisters untill he's old enough? Any help would be apreciated! Trying to make the best decision for my flock.
