We have 4 Wyandottes 2 Gold & 2 silver 34 weeks of age. The # 2 hen seems to be slipping to a lower status as she is showing signs of being pecked on the head & neck, she is our only non laying hen. Is there a correlation between egg laying & status within the pecking order? None of the other hens are showing any feather loss. The coop is about 1/2 of what's recommended but it is only to sleep in. Perch space is more than adequate. The run is 2.5 times what is recommended as minimum. We were allowing them free range time each day but stopped because it required direct supervision, they came to expect it everyday & they became loud & obnoxious when it didn't happen. I'm not sure if the pecking started when the free ranging stopped but that is also a possibility. Thoughts? Thanks!
