Calmer supplement???

    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if/what products work for calming chickens down a little?? It just seems like the past few nights on the roost have been kind of chaotic, and the girls have been grouchy and nipping at each other. No, I'm not over crowding, I found (thanks to the people who answered my thread) my coop and run can comfortably fit 16 LF hens. I currently have 9 in there. ;)

    Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    -Peaches

    They're likely just experiencing a bit of a change in order. Chickens have their "place" on the roost and get grouchy when someone decides she should be somewhere else. Just let them work it out. No harm is being done.
