I have a very large Easter Egger hen (Not sure if she is normal size or not. I only have two, and she is about an inch taller than the other one) and I have Bantams. 2 Easter Egger hens, and 3 Bantam hens. The very one Easter Egger (Tilly) will go up inside the coop (I have to shut the door every day now) and peck the little Broody Silkie and make her get up off her nest and sometimes run out of the coop. Why does she do this? I think the hen has a nest by the Silkie, and the Silkie may have one or two EE eggs up under her. But the Silkie was there first, and I think she is in the two week stage of broody. Also, another question: Why doesn't my Broody Silkie get mad or puff up like my Cochin Bantam hen did? My Cochin never pecked me, but would peck other chickens. My Silkie just lets other hens run over here, and she doesn't protect like shes suppose to.
