For now I would just keep an eye on them. In many cases the most dominant female will breed while the other females won't. Adding more nest boxes may actually add to the dominance or fighting issue as even though they might be the same the most dominant female may want them all, LOL! Sometimes they will race back and forth between nest boxes picking on the other females just to keep the others from breeding. If Salty is not actually hurting the other females or keeping them from eating etc I would say just leave the flock as it is. You may at some time want to even up the numbers a bit but give them time and watch their flock dynamics to see how the current birds are doing and make sure if you want or need to add more flock members.

If any of your birds decide to breed it will probably be the more dominant female with the male and the others won't bother even trying but again something to keep an eye on.

Good luck with your little flock let me know if their attitudes toward each other turns bad or if you have any other questions.
