As the words imply she is a bad chicken. Every time that this one
walks by her, the white one gets pecked on her back. All the feathers are gone from that spot and it is bright red.
Not sure if one is just mean or the other is too docile. I have heard about the pecking order but, this is getting out of hand. We separated them for now. One of the ideas I read about was to put the dominate/mean one in another coop. She the red is locked up in the run and the the other three are in the small coop.
The hubs let the three run today and left the mean one in her run. She is mad and runs around clucking when I go near. She still laid and egg. Crazy chicken.
Supposedly this separation will put her in a lower position of authority. No more dominate/mean chicken. When she is reintroduced to the group she is suppose to be more docile. We will see.
If this does not work then she will be dinner. Anyone know how to kill and clean a chicken? It has been years since I did it.
Ideas? Will this work?
