I have a seven month old RIR who has been laying for two months. We have a small backyard flock and she has always been at the top of the pecking order. The roo seems to have been awfully rough on her and her comb is scabbed over a bit, but this has happened before. Something is just not right this time, though, she has been hiding from the others- not just the roo, and she wants to be on top of me all of the time! She will jump on to my shoulders and doesn't want to get down. She has always enjoyed one on one time, but never to this extent. She is eating and drinking, she just seems needy ( for lack of better description). She has laid one or two soft shelled eggs, but again this is not new. She has constant access to oyster shells, and before she lays the soft egg she fluffs up. We've had only a few instances of soft shelled eggs, but she recovered quickly and things went back to normal. She has been doing to fluff thing for two and half days now, and the "needy, wanting to be on someone" consistently for a little over 24 hours. I am going to quarantine her, if for no other reason than so that she can calm down and relax my lil queen is being picked on by everyone. I am a first time chicken mom and the last six months have been pretty uneventful healthwise, so any suggestions/ideas/advice will be greatly appreciated!!
