Personality switch?

My youngest pullet, Maeve, has suddenly turned from a lovely, friendly, sweet hen into a pecky, aggressive monster. She is a pekin bantam, approx 20 weeks old, and has always loved sitting on my lap for a fuss. All of a sudden, literally in the last few days, she has started pecking me if I try to touch her, and even charging me with all her feathers up. Do chickens have puberty? Is she perhaps coming into lay and a bit mental? Does anyone have any experience of crazy chickens?

Very strange, possibly in need of an ASBO

grin I'm hoping that it's some odd hormonal thing which means she'll soon be coming in to lay.
