First off I'd like to say hi from Alberta Canada where it's is nice winter day at about 15 F. Wanted to say thanks to all of the valuable input I read on this site preparing for my girls to arrive. I recently picked up my 10 Lohmann Browns and they're becoming more and more at home. They are 12 months old and after having them for only one week I'm getting between 6-9 eggs a day! They were moulting for dec and Jan and now are feathered in real nice again. I do have concerns for one girl though. At first I thought she ruled the roost as she was the first one up and got to the highest point. After watching the behaviours of the others I now think she may get up high to avoid the others. The other day when she was dust bathing in the saw dust she was getting picked on quite aggressively. The others were pecking at her head and she was just taking it in stride. Is this normal? Is there anything I should be doing for her, or just let it be? At any rate I appreciate the insight and look forward to hearing from you folks. So long from "north of the upper 48!"
