Okay, I know the title sounds weird. Lol. I have four pullets. Two are laying, one is close...she may have laid a soft shell last night. The other is nowhere close and has really gotten skittish lately. My problem is that my chickens free range for at least an hour or so every day, sometimes longer. I usually let them out any time I am outside, and for an hour or two before dark. Three of them come running when I call them and shake a handful of scratch in a cup. They will also put themselves back in the coop at dusk. The fourth, the immature one, has started refusing to go back when it is time. She is the lowest in pecking order, and was being pecked at (not enough to draw blood or lose feathers), so I separated the main bully for a few days, and when that didn't work, I separated her for a few days. That seemed to do the trick and she doesn't get picked on anymore, but still keeps to herself much of the time. So I have to chase her every time I put up the chickens. She won't come for treats, and won't let anyone catch her. It takes three people to get her back in the coop, herding her toward the door, while making sure the others don't get back out. It is exhausting. Lately, I let the three out and just leave her in the run attached to the coop, throwing some greens in. Will this alienate her more, and make the others reject her again? Is there a better way to handle this? I can't keep chasing her all over.
