I have 2 BO hens and I think one has started squatting. Maybe someone can shed some light on this.
So this morning I went out to put some food out for the girls and I approached the younger of the 2 and brought my over her and she basically laid flat with her head down. Again a few hours later I tried the same thing and she did the same and let me stroke her.
I tried to take a picture but she moved off when the phone came out.

Any tips?

I think if you read this entire thread your questions will be answered...if they aren't, post again with age of bird and any specific questions.

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!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
