    So, I have a pair of bantam hens and 1 bantam rooster-- they all free range with the rest of the chicken everyday--and he gets to practice "free love" all day . At night, however, they all three share a small house away from the other chickens--lately, one of the hens is separating herself from them--has been roosting at night with the "other" ladies---One of the bantams has also started laying eggs again--have ya'll noticed a change in behavior when they begin to lay. Just wondering.

    She is becoming a woman, almost every chicken has some kind of weird personality swing when the time to lay eggs hit. Maybe she thinks now she will grow up to be a standard. XD
