So I gave the girls A LOT of worms today (if you missed it i bought a variety pack last week with super worms, wax worms, red giants, and large and small mealworms) and at first it was all fine, everyone was near everyone else finding their worms and running cause the worms are higher value. But I noticed just now when I went out to give them some more that one of the Australorps suddenly got mean. It started out fine like when I gave them the other worms then I guess when they became harder to find? She started scratching around looking for them and then chasing off every single other hen!! Seriously. Even ones I thought were high up on my pecking order like the other Australorp and my Barred Rock. Nope. I'm used to those 3 chasing the other chickens (Orpingtons and Easter Eggers), although the Orpingtons hold their ground and chase too, but I've never seen them chase fellow top hens. She was vicious. Ran them off clear across the pen multiple times and wouldn't let ANYONE near her zone. There's one poor Easter Egger that gets chased by everybody but the chasing higher ranking girls was new. Now, she didn't like maul them or anything, just a hard peck and chased them away, and I'm sure it's just because of the extreme high value of the worms and she's relatively nice otherwise and lays well so I'm not gonna cull her or anything but I was just thinking..... Surely this is not top hen behavior? Is she just a bully? I thought a good top hen or rooster shared their food with everybody? I know at least I've seen people say a good roo should tidbit and/or let his ladies eat first, bring them food, etc. which seems like the exact opposite of hogging all the food for yourself and chasing off anyone who comes near???? What do you guys think?
