My 5 month old hen is exhibiting odd behavior that I am pretty sure just means she is about to start laying. My question though is about another hen that is responding oddly. While the first hen is sitting in her nest or roosting on the shelf, the 2nd hen stays right by her side. One time I peeked on and she was actually on top of her, straddling the 1st hens head. Why isn't she with the other chickens? Is it normal for the other chickens to act oddly while one is about to lay? So far no eggs from any of the pullets.
