My chickens are six months old, all raised together since they were days old. 13 hens and 1 roo. They have always gotten along together fine, aside from mild bickering such as pulling on feathers, etc. Anyway, today I go out to check on them, take them some scratch, and all of a sudden Penelope attacks Annie! Just out of nowhere! And Penelope is usually very sweet. I noticed that Annie's comb was scabbed, as if this wasn't the first of it. Yesterday they were fine, today fighting. Annie ran back into the coop and was terrified. Even of me. Finally she comes back out and as soon as Penelope sees her she bee lines for her and chases her back in. I don't get it! Any idea what is going on? How can I fix this? They just started laying about two weeks ago, I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not. They have to live together, there's only one coop and one run. I'm at a loss. Any help is much appreciated.
