    My one sex link X sussex is being a tad bit annoying. She is the one in the coop who is constantly attacking me! Any ideas? Shes not setting or broody? She is molting so stopped laying eggs? Advice

    If she is molting and growing in new feathers, she may just be crabby because she's uncomfortable.

    Yep, they don't feel good and they don't want to be bothered while molting.​

    All of my hens except like 6 are molting and she is the only one doing this. Hmm guess it makes sense wouldnt want someone to bother me either if I was "shedding" lol
