I have a backyard flock. They are free range, at night they roost in the trees. They prefer this to the coop. They are 20 weeks golden star hens and a mutt barred rock roo. Tonight, 3 of my girls where pecking at the back door which they do when the want me to come out (11p very dark out). They seemed out of it, and wondered mighty close to the dog who is on a runner by a big tree . The dog will chew on them like a toy given the chance, and they were mighty careless about getting by him. One of them even looked as if she was bit on her little comb and had blood and a small piece missing. They have never behaved this way, and the other two hens where roosting happily in the tree above the coop. Should I be concerned about this wondering at night? I took them over and put them on the coop we are building. They just really seemed confused.
