Hi- thanks for this group. I had 2 chickens but lost one 3 weeks ago. I have 1 RR left. I know chickens don't like change, but she will not leave the coop. Just stays up in the rafters for most of the day. I am new to chickens so I thought she was mourning the death. She won't come down to eat or drink and thinking she will starve to death - I have left her a small bowl of food and water up in the coop. Today - I thoroughly cleaned the coop from top to bottom. Thinking that would take away the smell of her buddy dying. I put in top soil and sand for a new floor. I brought the food dish and water back down where it belongs. She spent 5 minutes walking around the floor and then up in the rafters!! No eggs since Gracie died. That's 3 weeks now. Penny - the one left-is also molting. I don't know if this is normal behavior or what. How much longer will this go on? I really don't want to get another chicken. I feel very sad about this. 3 weeks of wondering if I'm going to lose her too. Thanks for all your help.
