We've got a new girl and our other two are very intimidated by her (she's a bit bossy and is picking on them, so I can't blame them). Well, the newby hasn't yet grasped the concept of where I want her to lay her eggs as I don't care to go on an egg hunt each day. I found one of hers today down in a corner of our lot. So, I've got them ALL in the coop right now. We've got a small tractor coop. "Vera" (the newby) hid from me last night and slept out on her own (who knows where, we combed the property) and was out again this morning at sunrise. Are these challenges to be expected with a new hen in the flock? I lost a RIR hen two weeks ago. She was a lower ranking hen. Presently "Ida Claire" has given "Vera" reign over the yard, but is not taking it well. Our girls free range. Insight? Feedback?
