I'm curious when pecking of newly introduced chickens subsides in the coop. I originally had 2 chickens in my coop: 1 roo and 1 pullet. I got 2 new pullets that are about the same age (14 weeks), but are smaller than my original 2. I kept them separate, but in eyesight of each other, for about 10 days. They have all been together in the big coop for about 4 days now, and while the pecking has slowed some, it is still more often than I thought it would be. The littler chickens tend to run around and squeal and the bigger ones still seem to be bossing them around. Will this ever calm down? Is there something I can do to help everyone get along a little bit better? I think I read somewhere that adding apple cider vinegar to their water helped calm hens down as far as pecking…anyone else heard of that or tried it? Thanks for any help you can pass my way. I love all my chickens, but am unhappy they aren't getting along easier after 4 days... **FYI...I do have 2 food dishes and 3 water bowls, because I read on this site that those are places where "bullying" usually takes place.
