Tuesday's Tip from Our Junior Blogger: How to Stop a Chicken from being a Bully

Little Chicken Tender is excited because she got her first tip request from a reader of her blog!  The question was:

"How do I stop two of my broody silkie chickens from being so mean to all the other chickens in the coop?  They are like bullies."

How to Stop a Chicken from being a Bully

You could just get rid of those chickens.  If you don't want to get rid of them you could put dried worms out and they will peck at them instead of pecking at the other chickens.  Or you could separate them into two groups: the bully ones and the nice ones. Keep the bully chickens separated until they don't peck at the other chickens or until they stop sitting on their eggs.  Maybe then they will start being nice.

Thank you, Little Chicken Tender!  I sure hope this chicken advice helps our reader deal with their broody silkies.  Stay tuned next week for another tip from our Junior Blogger.  Do you have a question for her that you would like to be answered?  Thanks for reading!
