    Shes such a brat! Ever since i stuck her in with a polish roo, she fell in love with him. When he mates with my other hen, the polish hen gets mad and pecks and chases her. JEALOUS little turd! And if i put any other chickens in with her she terrorizes them. Shes not even in her home turf. Its new to her too.

    What should i do with her? The roo likes all the newbies, and the other hen doesnt mind them, but the polish hen hates anyone but her roo!

    You can aremove her from the flock for a couple days and put her on the bottom pecking order.
