As the weather has got colder here in the UK my chickens have stopped laying which I expected but they also seem to have really quietened down, and stopped moving around so much. It seems to me like almost like they’ve gone into a sort of semi hibernation state! They still potter around from time to time and they are eating and drinking fine and go crazy for sunflower seeds and other treats but a lot of the time they just sit quietly. They just seem kind of pensive! Any expertise and advice you can offer me? I don’t think they’re ill but maybe there are things I should check for? They’ve been recently declared free of worms, and no sign of any mites or lice. They’re currently moulting.
