    Again, I have had these 13 gals since June 2nd. They are a year old. Our coop is large enough for 25 hens. We have 10 nesting boxes...

    I have two hens who chase the others away from the nesting boxes, peck or will even join them in the nest to get them out. ???

    Is this normal? They keep the others from laying, it seems.

    Obnoxious, but normal. I would put up a few nesting boxes in another area if possible. They can't hog all of them!
