    Could it be true that my 21week old pullet got jealous over my 18 week old EE getting mated by my rooster. Previously Snow White was the only one getting mated by Foghorn.

    That's lead hen not Ben! Lol! Gotta love smartphone autocorrect

    The reason I ask is because the older hen pecked the younger while the rooster was mating the younger
