We have a Rhode Island Red hen I'm a bit concerned about. As far as I can tell she's the bottom of the order which might explain her behavior? When we bring in fruit/ greens etc she often stays behind until the others lose interest then eats what is left which makes me think bottom. We often find her napping in the coop during the day while everyone else is outside. She just started laying about a week ago while the rest of my same age flock have been laying for over a month. Now we want to bring in our three 12-15wk old chicks and she tried violently attacking them by knocking them down and pecking their necks. We've separated them again. The chicks have been in a coop and run within the coop for months so they're familliar. All the rest of the flock seem fine with the chicks. What's up with my girl? Is this typical? Any ideas?
