A dominant 9 Week old RIR and pecking

I have a very dominant RIR that is "bullying" her other 8 pals; especially my 3 americaunas (1 has barely any tail feathers at all now...and it has only just started the past 2 least that I am aware of and I'm outside most of the time). What do I do? Do I just let them be and get something to put on their "rear areas"? Any help would be appreciated.

Your son is a delight!  I had been thinking about telling him there is a new 2 week old kid and 3 baby Maras, and maybe ducklings soon.  Such fun!  You are welcome to come and see, of course.  Mornings and evenings are better and I have a commitment this Friday, but other than that suggest what works for you.  Ask Colin to give you my phone # if you want to not write this schedule checking ;-)

I look forward to meeting you,
