1 Hen keeps a distance from the rest....???

So we have 5 hens, 2 Black Australorps, 2 Rhode Island Reds, and 1 Buff Orpington . They are about 7 months old now and all has been fine, but now we are noticing that 1 of the Rhode Island Reds has been pecking at the other, mostly whenever there is food around. But the one that gets pecked at is separating herself from the flock a lot. She is often in the coop when they are outside and often she is roosting when they are in the pen. I'm wondering if this is normal behaviour? It has been a snowy day or 2 and they haven't been roaming as much as usual. Any suggestions or is this normal? No injuries or feathers lost, but just bully pecks I think....
