We have a free range chicken who sleeps on the porch on a basket (she roosts on the handle of the basket) and her nesting box is near where she sleeps. She only goes into her nesting box when she is going to lay an egg then sits there for a little while and jumps out and goes on about her day. But yesterday she started acting weird....She will not roost on the handle of the basket she will only sleep inside of the basket on some pine chip bedding. She is being aggressive. My boyfriend is the one that puts her up on her basket never having any problems, but she now pecks him when he touches her to put her up there. Yesterday and today she destroyed the porch, she was climbing on top of the tool cabinet knocking everything off of it, was kicking bedding everywhere, destroyed a magazine that was sitting on the bench out there etc... My boyfriend spent about an hour cleaning up after her today and mother in law about an hour or so the day before, She jumped up behind my mother in law and started bawking at her trying to get her to move. She seems to be going through a very soft molt, she is only growing in a few new tail feathers and that is it. She just started laying again, she had stopped for a few weeks, she is laying an egg almost everyday. She is not acting broody,like wanting to stay on her eggs. Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this odd behavior??
