    I only have two chickens. One is a BSL and the other BR. The BR is the one with the trouble, and is around 9 months old. She hasn't layed an egg in a week and a half. She has been aggressive towards my BSL for the first time ever in this time. She pecked her legs, and comb, and her top feathers are gone. I don't think it has to do with the weather since they were laying eggs in colder weather than it is now. Last week I didn't have oyster shells for 4 days because the store was out. Could this be the reason why or could she have something like worms? Thanks xox

    You would need to tell us about their feed and living conditions to make a good guess.
