Do I have a “bully” hen?

Recommended Posts

We are new owners of 3 hens, a Golden Maran (Dora), a Lohmann Brown (Biscuit) and a White Star (Estrella). We have had them for a week and they are slowly settling in. Biscuit is the head hen and keeps chasing the other ones especially when they are out of the coop. She doesn’t let them go too far from it. They bicker a lot, nothing too serious though. We are wondering if it’s normal behaviour while trying to establish the Peking order or if Biscuit is a “bully” hen and therefore we should intervene. Many thanks.

Sounds like they are still just finding their feet. How old are they?

Provide them with more feeding and drinking stations so the bully can’t guard the food.
