This is Sunshine aka "The nest hog". At first she was kicking everyone out of the other nest boxes if it was around her time to lay an egg. I swear, she'd make the hens wait all day to lay their eggs, due to this behavior and delaying her own laying of eggs. I had to sperate her from the others when this was happening. It was a big problem.
Now the nest hog has another problem. Whenever a hen just gets done laying their egg, she kicks them out without giving them a chance to recover and sits on their egg. I grab the egg from under her and she hops out and hangs out in the run. I've seen her sit on eggs before, but I think it's strange she is waiting for them outside the box and once that egg hits the nest box, she kicks the laying hen out to lay on their egg. She will go as far as pecking them on the comb or backside. She waits for me to pick up the egg and leaves.
She's never been broody, she lays for me every day. Is this typical hen behavior? Sunshine is 2nd or 3rd rank out of the 8 hens. Or is she a hen with strange nest behavior???
I have 3 nest boxes for the 8 hens, they only use 2.
