There are 18 chickens to 9 nests, there are at least 4 boxes open most of the day as their laying isn't at the same time.I have a two story nest box, three on top three on bottom, then there are a few nests on/in some boxes that they use. I have a hen that is chasing everyone away from the one with 6 nests, she takes over all six. I just have her in a rabbit cage for now, but every time I let her out she pecks anyone who even steps too close to it.
I don't know whats up with her, especially since this just started this week and has gotten worse plus nothing has changed in the flock.
