I have 3x 2yr old hens and 2x 6m old pullets who have just started laying. The pullets have been with the flock for a few months now and were always getting picked on by the older ones as I was expecting. Within the last week or so, the pullets are no longer getting pecked at. I'm thinking it is because they have started laying. Anyway, the roost in my coop is about 2m long and is the only one in there. the 3 older hens would always roost at one end (closest to the door) and the pullets at the far other end. Well tonight when I checked on them, there were 2 of the older hens in 'their' spot and the other older hen was snuggled up with the pullets at the other end. The one that changed positions was the one I thought was 'top hen'. Did the pullets move up to 2nd and 3rd spot? or was the one who moved not really #1? I know on a roost that has multi levels, the top spot really is the top spot, but what about a roost that is the same level throughout?
