Ok my white rock is still really picking on the Americauna whenever she sees her. The Am is totally passive but really getting pecked by the WR. I am kicking her out of the nest boxes daily. She is only 5 months old, laid regularly for about 2 weeks and has stopped since she became the lowest on the pecking order and moved into the nest box for extended time. When I kick her out, she eats and drinks, but was quickly finding her way back to the box. Today I blocked the entrance to the nest boxes ( although I have no idea how this will go over if my other 2 decide its time to start laying. )What strikes me odd is that she has not laid an egg in about 4-5 days and is not sitting on any. When I lift the lid to the nest box, this girl who generally is afraid to eat from my hand, hardly coos a word while I pick her up. No struggle to escape. Her color looks ok, she has lost a little weight, but I see nothing wrong with her. Could my WR be pecking and sitting on her because she is sick? or is she just extremely docile while broody? I wish birds could talk.
