I have 5 red stars and 1 EE. They will be 20 weeks tomorrow. We started getting eggs at just over 17 weeks and today we got 4 for 6. Had a lot of soft shells at first there is oyster shell in the feed but I added some free choice as well and that seems to have worked itself out. So here is the issue: Yesterday I went out to the coop and noticed blood in the nest box. At first I thought it was just from egg laying. I checked out the chickens and one of them had a bloody comb. I cleaned it up and noticed the EE was picking on the red star with the bloody comb. The red star wouldn't go back in the coop and subsequently laid an egg in the run. Fast forward to today. I get home and hear a hen squawking in the coop the same red star is in the nest box and the EE is just outside harassing her. So we sat there and shooed the EE away for awhile but then the EE chased the red star into the run and pecked her hard on the head and just after that she dropped her egg in the run. Any ideas on what to do. Do I just let them work it out? Are there ways to modify the nest boxes? I don't want eggs in the run and I don't want bloody chickens.
