Is it common for a hen to nap several times on a sunny day? This isn't the usual sun bathing; she's just sitting quietly on the ground and occasionally closes her eyes. She is eating, drinking, and foraging most of the day. Egg production has slowed down a bit, but less than a week ago we rehomed a bully hen who had been picking on her for about 6 months (jumping on her back, picking feathers off her head). She is our most cautious hen, and we are hoping she finally is having a chance to just relax. She did lay a very nice egg today. Any thoughts? The sitting down is new.
