i think i understand the pecking order but how is my wyandotte supposed to lay an egg when one of the other chickens keeps picking on her & basically shooing her out of the nest? I know I cant do it everyday but so far the only way Cleo can lay is if I sit out there & keep the others away from her!.. How dumb is that? I know, Im a newbie here but i like her little brown eggs. Im ready to get rid of her but the other 3rd chiken (other leghorn) hasnt been laying in a little over a week & that wuold leave me with only one egg layer. Advice plz

clarification: get rid of the mean Baldy so Cleo can lay - which would leave me with 2 chickens - Cleo who lays & Henrieta who doesnt & leaves Cleo alone
