Thanks for the reassurance . Now we're having social issues. I already had an australorp . She doesn't seem to mind the brown one, but wants nothing to do with the other one. If she gets too close, she picks at her and chases her off. The golden one won't even come near her, and you can see she's pretty stressed. Is this something that will go away with time, or should I nip this in the bud?
Three hens equals one third wheel. Sounds like your Blondie is the third wheel. As long as she can avoid the alpha hen, she should be okay but lonely. If both top hens start in on her though, that's time to separate for protection. Ironically, if you get more youngsters, Blondie will harass the newbies like Blondie is harassing her.
