I'm a bit perplexed. Today for some reason my EE (top of order) started picking on my BR (bottom of order). I cannot figure out why. I have 3 chickens, never a pecking order issue except when we lost one in the flock & it was just minor reestablishing positions. Otherwise they are all great together. My 3rd is a BO & she's the middle girl. All are about 6 months, together since day 1. My BO & BR have been laying for a few weeks. My EE is not laying yet. Today I found my BR hiding in a corner. I held her a bit bc I could tell the was a kerfuffle. When I put her down my EE had another dustup with her. So I separated them. Each time I let them try out being together today, my EE just kinda stays after her....hasn't pecked her or anything again bc my BR just kinda runs away. What's going on? Could she be close to laying & acting bullyish bc of that? Everything is the same & the have tons of room, food & water.
