    sounds like the head hen is challenging you :)
    Might want to chase her when she does this...... another thing that helps is to dog crate them for a day and upset the pecking order.

    You don't have a rooster do you?

    you can also grab em up and carry her around until after your done feeding, etc... let the others eat before she does.....

    Basically you just want to point out your the boss not her.
