    I have a 7 month old flock of six, a barred rock, an orpington, an australorp, two easter eggers, and a silkie bantam. Everyone but the easter eggers picks on my silkie, Ether, a lot. However if the Easter eggers, Margaret and Matilda, are around when someone attacks, they will peck the attacker. If Esther does not have an EE with her at all times she screams at the top of her lungs. Esther does not lay yet, but my EEs have recently started. If Matilda is laying an egg, Esther will follow her into the nest box and wait for her to be done. picture below--

    Sometimes my chickens will try to get in a occupied nest box. When they were smaller I once caught three trying their best to squish in there.
