hen pecking - again

Recommended Posts

Hi there. we got all our chooks on Saturday and there was a bit of minor pecking which seemed to settle down quite quickly, all of a sudden today they all seem to be picking on Loveheart (Iknow, I know, named by my 6 yr old!) but seriously, they're really having a go at her poor little thing. It's worse when we're out there or if they think they're going to get treats so we've all come in. Do we have to just let them get on with it?

As long as they're not drawing blood, Mrs Bertie, I think they just need to get on with it. We found it was better when we weren't watching, or when the peckee had a chance to escape - ie when free ranging.


If its really bad you should think about bumper bits.
