my hen pecked hen
It’ looked this bad 4 weeks ago from the other hens pecking at her, so I removed her from the flock to roam the backyard. She’s getting better, but really wants to go in with the rest of the hens in the fenced in area. I guess she doesn’t know that they could draw blood if they keep pecking at her.
Some time later- Well, it’s been over a month now and she is much better! The amount of skin shown is the size of a dime now instead of the photo above, but there’s still a problem. I put her back in the hen court yard and the other hens chase her and peck at her! After 10 minutes of that, I brought her out of the enclosed hen area to roam the back yard once again- this time permanently. I need a chicken sociologist to figure this one out!
