    My Sex link hen a year old has recently taken to picking and fighting with my bantam roo. I only saw it the one time when I was feeding them, but what could cause this behavior?

    Could she just be ticked off because he's trying to mate her?

    I have three banties and their eggs seem to be fertile, but all my big girls have dark eggs and I can't tell when I candle them.
