Could anyone help us with a problem that we are having with our hens. We recently rescued 3 ex battery hens, we got them settled in their egglu and everthing has been rosey for 4 months. One of the hens started to turn nasty and has reapeatedly pecked the other 2 hens' rear ends in the area of the vent. This has been going on for the past week and has caused alarm with the family as the blood was clearly flowing. I know that seperation may have been the solution but how do I do that? Where do I keep the offending hen? So I took drastic action for the welfare of the other two and I reluctantly dispatched her Now I dont want this problem to re occur so I am curious as to what was the possible cause of this behaviour....any ideas anyone please
