My RRRs are close to laying now. Their combs and wattles are reddening up. I understand that when there are only hens, that one will become dominant and not lay. How do I prevent this happening? Does this always happen?

I have 2 RIR hens and a cross bred rooster. My dominant hen is the only one laying right now. The other hen acts cowardly any time she is in the pen with the dominant hen. If I let her out she acts normal. Put her back in, she drops her head and won't hardly eat. Wierd. And yes my dominant hen bosses the rooster around too.
