    Our 24 week laying BRs recently started to peck at each other
    at food, on roost etc. One of them even slept in the next box
    last night. Total of 5 BRs. They have enough place to roost and
    freerange all day.

    They got along fine in the past.
    What could be the reason ? Harmones, Natural Process ?
    Somehow the resources (food and space) not enough ?
