    Today I went out to feed the girls and Sheldon went after my feet like she usually does, except today as she was trying to attack me another girl bit her every time she went after me. It was almost like the other hen was trying to protect me. Was she?

    She could be. One of my older hens "protects" the young hens from my rooster, though he is just trying to mate with them. Are you sure the attacker is a she?
