SO, I have this EE pullet and she's apparently decided that she should be the rooster of the flock. But, there is already a cockerel in charge. She tries to interrupt when he mates with any of the other pullets (as in she runs over and pecks him on the head while he's mounted). She charges him with hackles flared (and no, I don't mean the back of her head, she flares the whole neck like he does). I saw her raise her feet and fly at him today and on another occasion they engaged in a really weird shoving match. I just don't know what to make of it. He is very tolerant of her outbursts and just gives her a gentle peck on the head to remind her that he's in charge. OH, and she is trying to boss the other pullets around (runs to round them up just like he does) and today she tried to charge our dog (he didn't even notice). She's laying just fine so I don't think it's hormonal. Is she a mental case or is the meek and mild cockerel too much of a pushover for a bossy biddie and she thinks she has a shot at overthrowing him?
