    I have 4 Red Sexlinks that are healthy from what I can see .. they are all eating and drinking fine, physically they look good as well. Yesterday 3 of them escaped out of their pin and then this morning 2 of then did the same so I let all of them out and they are all acting very hyper almost like they're really hungry even though both of their feeders are full and they have plenty of water. 3 of them are laying and 1 is still a couple of weeks off before she should start laying. Is this normal? It is getting colder outside, would this impact their behavior? Any help would be great! Thanks!

    If you have a coop, and you let them out...

    Its like if your locked in your room with food water etc. and your let out into the real world then you would be jumping around your so happy! Same thing.
