I have 5 chickens. All purchased at the same time (actually started with 8, 3 were roosters). 3 have started laying, 2 haven't. One that hasn't is an easter egger. The other one that hasn't started laying is just plain mean. It pecks at me, won't go towards the coop when I herd them in in the evenings. Today it pecked/grabbed my pants leg and wouldn't let go. Kind of like a dog playing tug of war. Are some hens just mean? Will it chill out once it starts laying? The layers are very submissive and calm. Here's a pic of the wee devil.
