We have seven new hens. 7 weeks old or so. 2 buff orps, 2 blk australorps, 1 auracana, 1 wht leghorn and 1 golden polish. The polish is quite often off on its own while the other 6 generally stick together. When we let them out of the run at the end of the day the polish is almost always by itself. Now and then it will chirp like it's realized it's alone. Question about the polish - are they just naturally loners or is her crest so large that it's obstructing her vision and she doesn't realize she's by herself? Sounds silly but I really wonder!
