That’s MY spot!

SDC18229

Every once in a while Ruby, on the right, will try to steal Cinnamon’s roosting spot. Cinnamon, on the left, can’t physically force her off, but gives her no rest until she moves on her own. Giving the evil eye, pecking her feet, etc.. Usually I end up intervening. I know it’s normal for chickens to fight at times, to keep up the pecking order, but I usually break up these fights if I see them. Besides, I know Ruby doesn’t really want to sleep there, she just got pushed down the line by the other hens. Cinnamon always wants the end spot, just doesn’t always get there before the others have gone to roost. Of course, when I move Ruby down I have to shuffle all the rest down, too, so Ruby can be in HER spot.
