    Hi! I've been concerned about a hen that's been molting. Her new feathers have started coming in and until today I was starting to feel better about her. (She had been kind of not herself, didn't have her usual perk, etc.) Well, this morning she will not leave the coop and come outside. She won't eat. She's just hanging out on the roost. I tried giving her a handful of peas to lure her out but she won't have it. The others seem fine. Thanks for any ideas - I've gotten some helpful info here in the past!

    I would scramble up some eggs for her, or make a mash out of her normal food. Get some protein in her, would be my advice.
