Hey Guys,

My Polish Silva has been Sitting on top of the roof of the coop anyone know why she has been doing that? Also she has been doing that since she had started molting.

On July, 28th 2016, I lost my Most Beloved Bird "Miss Red" She was a beautiful Rhode Island Red at 3 years old. She was the most perky, loving and tolerent bird i EVER had!!! Miss Red loved to go on walks and sit in laps. She even went to 2 parades and a 1st grade classroom.

Could she be experiencing some bullying by the other flock members?

Molting is hard on them and uncomfortable, they often are less active, rest more and may isolate a bit when molting.

Make sure she is getting plenty of protein to help grow those feathers back in quicker.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
