    Buttercup is the only survivor of her brood from last spring. I put her in with the other hens when she was about the same size, but she never really became one of them. She will not leave the coop to go into the run because she is afraid of the other hens. She will go out the big door in the evening when I let them freerange, but I have to leave the big door open or she will not go back into the coop at bed time, because the others pick on her when she tries to come in the little chicken door. She is not having a good life and I was hoping to find someone who might be interested in taking her. Maybe she would fit in better with smaller or younger chickens? What do you think? Any advice would be apprecated.

    I'm in Oregon House. I know, no one has ever heard of Oregon House. I'm between Grass Valley and Marysville, but I also go to Sacramento a lot.
