Hey y'all I have a Partridge Rock that is exhibiting behavior that could either be broody or pecking order issues. She has been staying in the nesting box at night for the past two nights and during the day. When I came to open the coop this morning she got out with all the other girls and ate and drank. When I came back this afternoon she was in the nesting boxes again. When I pushed her out she puffed up but no growling or trying to peck me. I was able to entice her out of the box with some dried mealworms. However, when she got down out of the coop, the other hens were very aggressive towards her, chasing and pecking whenever she got close. She eventually went back to the nesting boxes but it seemed like it was more to hide. I thought maybe the hens were getting bored since they haven't free ranged in awhile so I let them out of the pen and this enticed her out of the coop but she stayed puffed up and was really skittish, darting around. Eventually one of the hens attacked her again and she ran back in the coop. I'm confused about if she's using the nesting box to hide or is trying to brood and getting picked on for being isolated from the other hens and potentially blocking their favorite nesting box (although I haven't seen her block anything). Any suggestions? I would hate to assume it's brooding and separate her in a broody cage if it's really just pecking order issues that will work themselves out. I've already removed all the eggs from the boxes and plan to keep on top of it.
