    and immediately afterwards one of the original girls started constantly clucking and squawking her fool head off. Finally OldGal went down, picked her up, cuddled and talked to her for a minute and she shut up. This morning she started again. Once again, OldGal went down and paid a little attention to her and she quieted down. Anyone else ever seen this behavior?

    Maybe she is doing it for attention? I've noticed it with older birds, but never young pullets.
