I have a Millie Fleur that is just about a year old. She was free range with her friend, however her friend met her maker due to a hawk about a month and a half ago. Since then, I have built her a large run and she no is no longer free range. Her behavior has changed since then. She would not really come out of the coop anymore unless I was out there with her. As soon as I go back in the house, she goes back in the coop. I thought she was lonely, so I would make it a point to spend time with her, even as far as letting her come in the house to socialize with me. During this time I was looking for a friend for her, but was not able to find another Bantam her age. I have recently purchased 2 Bantam chicks that are almost 7 weeks old, hoping that they will keep the Millie Fleur company. They have been staying in the house because I think it is too cold, especially at night. The past couple of days it has been warmer and so I have put them in the run with my Millie Fleur. She is not really pecking them, only a bit if they are eating something and she wants it first. Anyway, the point of this is that my Millie Fleur does not care to socialize with them. I think that she just wants to come in the house. If I am cleaning the coop, she gets to free range a bit, but she just runs right up to the door of my house, waiting to go inside. When she is in the run I have closed the coop door for a bit so she doesn't go in there and stay all day. I want her to get used to the chicks. She runs back and fourth along the run, starring at my house like that her main goal is to get in my house. I am determined not to let her in the house anymore, but I feel bad for her like she is sad and lonely. If I stick to my guns, not letting her in the house anymore, will she eventually change her behavior? Will she ever get along with my two younger Bantams? Will she be upset with the younger Bantams, since they still come in the house at night? Sorry if I sound like I am rambling, just want to explain all details.
