Hello! I have a BSL who is almost at her POL (huge red comb, wattles & face, lots of squatting). In the past week I've noticed she's become quite aggressive. She not only pecks at her flockmates, but me as well. She's not the alpha hen, and twice this week she took out a chunk of feathers from the lowest pullet in the pecking order. They free-range and have plenty of space and food. Is this typical behavior? Will it subside when she starts laying? Thanks for your help!
