    Hello everyone! I'm new here so firstly, my name is Melissa. I've had Pekin Bantams for two years. Just lost my lavender hen to tumor. I got another Pekin for my remaining gal and they get on great. I also got two Poland's. One is brilliant, the other beyond insane. I think something is wrong. She screams constantly, runs constantly and bashes into everything. Wont sit still. She's upsetting the flock. There is no peace. So afraid she is gonna harm herself. Any advce is appreciated. She is bashing into everything like she's lost her mind. :(

    I posted in the other forum and she laid an egg!!!! First one so she must have been confused! Do Polands normally lay eggs on the floor? My Pekins go in the nesting box. First try with crazy Poland's. She is calm and happy now. Whew!
