Yes, funny little pekins aren't they if a bit annoying, but I don't mind so much if the others are laying.
I was thinking about doing some chicks with her but was more worried about upsetting the apple-cart when they all get mixed back in with the others and I would rather the peace they have at the moment.
Seven years of that behaviour though
