Our flock consists of 4 RIR's and 3 BR's. They are all the same age, 23wks. The RIR's started laying at 21wks, Labor Day. One of the Barred's started today. Since they started laying one of the Barred's has suddenly become very possessive, OF ME? If I pet any of the gals other than her she attacks whom ever I'm with. The concern is they're all usually so tame, almost to tame and I'm wondering if this behavior is going to get worse. Actually they're so tame they peck on my kitchen door if I go into the house OR they just follow me in. They all mantle anytime I come around and love their necks feathers especially ruffled. Our gal with the attitude is not laying yet, will she settle down once she starts? Which I suspect by behavior will be sometime this next week. Any ideas??
