I have an odd problem. Out of my 14 hens, I have one that does not seem to want to be part of the flock. She is a WCB polish hen and when I let them free range, she wanders off on her own with no buddies. If I keep them in the run, she will be as far from the rest of the flock as possible. This behavior has gotten worse lately to the point where she won't go back into the coop. I have to go out every night now searching the bushes to find her new roost and put her back in the coop. I sat and watched her today. She gets as far from the flock as possible and if they start moving toward her, she starts clucking agitatedly. The flock doesn't seem to bother her. I haven't seen any pecking or harassment. Also, I have trimmed back her crest feathers in case this was a case of her not being able to see clearly and that hasn't helped at all. Any idea what could be causing this behavior? My husband found her perched on a stick out in the run right next to the coop well after dark today. This chicken has always been a little flaky, for years she is the one that periodically fails to get back to the coop at night and has always tended to wander away from the flock on her own from time to time, but it seems to be getting much worse now! It's every single night she doesn't come in and during the day she is deliberately avoiding the flock. Any ideas? Has she just gone mad? Is the flock waiting until my back it turned to beat her up?
