I have 2 problems at the moment, and would like any advice you'll share. 1. I had 5 cockerels 22 hens and 9 pullets, the girls were so scared of the run I lost one to a predator yesterday, as she didn't want to go to the run, and one isn't even coming in to eat and drink, today I pulled 2 of the 3 dominant cockerels, leaving 1 dominant and 2 who don't really leave the roost. I can't butcher till Tuesday, as I'm very busy, I have them in a seperate building, but the forecast is for more stupid hot weather, with the door closed there is minimal ventalation, though 25 broilers did fine in it during cooler weather. I'm barely home during this weekend, between birthdays and other commitments, besides lots of water, is there something that I NEED to do for them? They are destined for the ax on Tuesday remember. 2. The chickens that are now scared of the run and coop, is there any way I can make them more comfortable? This is 5/9 pullets and 2 hens that are newer to the flock. The pullets and one hen stick close, without coming in more than they have to, and the other hen had apparently made a home in the trees (will she come back, or should I go looking and force her back once a day? Again, any ideas will be welcome. Oh the pullets and cockerels are 18 weeks (3 15 weeks), all my hens are just over a year.
