I have a White crested black polish bantam hen and she is housed with some other birds but not the same breed as her. Well i have caught her, she doesnt want anyone to be in her nest and doesnt want anyone elses eggs in her nest with her egg so if there are any eggs in there and they arent hers she busts them or trys scratching them out of the nest. Is there anything i can do?

I would not let her break eggs. She may become an egg eater, then you have another problem.
Usually chickens like to all lay their eggs in the same nest. Maybe she needs to be separated for a few weeks, that would put her down a few pegs on the totem pole, and give more hens time to gain in status. It might put her in her place.

yeah i am thinking about kicking her out with the free range birds and maybe seeing if they will straighten her out. My free range hens will not tolerate her breaking eggs.
