My GUESS is that since she started laying again, her hormones are back to normal and she is asserting herself. Even my top of the flock Ancona get shy when they are moulting but regain their mojo when their moult is over. Given you have only the 3 birds, I would think they will get it all figured out pretty soon. No one in charge likes to give up their "position"
I thought about hormones too but she's been laying for 2 months regularly and just up and went bonkers one day. She was not coming out of molt either. She just decided to be a pill because she's bigger than the others and is pushing her bully weight around. She's always been an odd duck and we felt sorry for her - I was keeping her as long as she stayed sweet to the Silkies but she really did a number on the littlest Silkie last week. Can't take the chance she'll hurt someone again. I have 4 birds total and it was working fine for the longest time. But my experience from past bullies is that it doesn't subside, even with isolation, because once integrated back into the flock, the aggressive behavior returns and meanness runs thru the flock. She will have a good home with friends that have 2 birds (EEs) and she'll be evenly matched with similar temperament birds of same size/weights. I agree molting will subdue alpha or aggressive birds temporarily but once the molt is over the bad behavior returns as we found with a White Leg we had for 3 yrs - laying or not laying made no difference. I accept flock politics but if injuries are occurring I don't need the drama or incurred vet bills.post #32924 of 348225/28/16 at 6:49pmpost #32925 of 348225/28/16 at 7:29pmQuote:
The hormone thing was something we considered. But since she started laying 3 yrs ago she can't jump out of the nestbox fast enough after laying an egg! She's never been interested in being a nurturing hen or gathering a clutch to set. She's never been like all the other Ameraucana feedback I got over the years. Like I said before, she's always been an odd duck that we kept because we felt sorry for her but now with such injurious behavior we won't go thru the drama. I'll tolerate flock politics but not injuries. She needs to be with hens her size that can take the flock battles. Our Silkies and Breda are too small for a fair defense.post #32926 of 348225/29/16 at 8:29amQuote:Originally Posted by Miss Ameraucana
Bird in pic #1 is an Easter Egger, her legs should be grey. She's very pretty though!
#2 I don't believe is white, her head is grey. There are founders and breeder's and club members on this thread that are extremely knowledgable though, they can tell you better and every one of them is really nice and very helpful😊
