I'll post this question again in a slightly different format. Our adopted rescue battery hen was laying one egg nearly every day. Now she is not laying. In the week before she stopped laying, our smaller adopted chick/pullet began pushing itself underneath her. That chick now sleeps underneath her every night, and a lot during the day. Anyone have this experience before. Could this be why she stopped laying. The hen is definitely the dominant chicken in our 4 chicken coop - but never bothers the little one herself. The little one pushes herself under the larger hen, and the other little one does the same. Any ideas? Any thoughts on how to change this behavior ?
