One of my BO is being really aggressive for the past several weeks with the other BO, who stays in the same coop with her. I later found out the aggressive BO was trying to lay an egg. She tried for the first couples of times but nothing happened then she laid her first egg several days ago. Ever since the hot weather has been taken over for months, I have them stay inside, in a coop. My guess is the BO wants some privacy whenever she tries to lay her egg so she's been pecking at the other constantly, not allowing her to eat the same food and whenever she has a chance, continue to peck the other. Yesterday, I came home and the hen somehow got out of the coop and laid an egg on the floor. The other time, as soon as I got home from work and let them out in the yard, she immediately ran into a backyard bush and stayed for at least 2 hours, and that was when she laid her first egg. For the time being, I can't separate them because I don't have an extra coop. What should I do? My other BO is loosing some weigh as she isn't able to eat/ drink much and I'm really worried. She's a really docile and super sweet hen. I just don't want things to get worse and she will soon get serious injury. Any suggestion on what I should do with the aggressive BO? How do I calm her? Is she being this aggressive mainly because she's during her initial stage of egg laying? Will she eventually calm down? Thanks so much!
