looking for advice
« on: May 27, 2010, 10:31 »
Hello This is a problem I have come across over the last few days. :mellow: I have 12 ladies, :) 6 are isa warrens 3 speckled hybreds and 3 blue hybreds, I have had the warrens since March, The other 6 I got 3 weeks ago I had the normal pecking order battles but nothing too serious, The problem I have got is that a blue hybred is attacking a couple of warrens when they go into the nest box to lay, :ohmy: has anyone got any ideas of how I can stop this please................
 Thanks in advance

Yes I have 5 nest boxes, She is following then into the coop, Its not as though she's wanting to lay herself.

she could be wanting to climb her way up the dominance ladder by getting them when they are busy.
