I tried to do a search on this, but I am not hitting the key search words I guess. This hen was looking roughed up. So I spent a few hours for a couple of days in the run and coop observing. That ridiculous little hen dives under the other hens like a chick. She then lays her eggs. I have hens share boxes and there is no problem, but this hen really irritates the other hens trying to lay. She'll dive in and out of all of the boxes until she lays. She is almost in a panic about it. Now I realize that my eggs that I find broken are not from an eater, like I thought, but from the goofy hen stepping on them. Will this behavior stop? I Would pick her up and put her into an empty box, but she'd jump right out and onto another laying hen. And she'd get pecked hardily too. She'd work her way under the hen and try to sit like that. Then I removed the laying hen into another box, thinking this weird hen wanted THAT particular box...but then she'd jump out and dive under another hen...who bit her too. Will she out grow it? They are buff Orps. 8 months old. This is kind of a runt chicken. She may be a new layer, because she was behind all of the others in development...she's been my problem child. Could she just not be all there upstairs?
