I have an Easter Egger who has been acting weird for several weeks. She has been hanging out in the coop or on the roost more often than not. She was going through a pretty rough molt so I figured she was just uncomfortable and didn't want to deal with the rest of the flock. She is now fully feathered and looks great.
She's alert, normal posture, walks fine, comes out of the coop to eat or drink, but then goes back in shortly after. Almost as if she is broody but instead of hanging out in a nest box, she is sitting on the roost or just hanging out in the coop.
The other day I found her hiding in the younger hens coop because there were too many in hers (her coop is much smaller).
Our flock has gotten significantly larger since we got her (she was in my original flock of 3), and there are 5 roosters to about 20 hens. Four of those roosters just now are coming into maturity and we just haven't had time to process them. Could she be hiding from them? Everyone is free range so there is plenty of room for escape although those roosters are pretty persistent...
