    I noticed one of my hens today running back and forth with her head down. All the chickens were inside but her. She just kept running back and forth then one came outside and she stopped no pecking or fights occurred. Anyone ever heard of this behavior?[​IMG]

    If I had to guess, she was lonely, but disinclined to go inside for some reason. My last one in every night does the same thing. Dumb cluck; she knows where the door is XD

    I agree.. sounds like she is lonely but for some reason doesn't want to go inside.
