    my son found it in the rabbit hutch...funny i would have not looked in there for one..

    this is the chicken i am worried about ,missing feathers on bottom .i moved her with the younger chicks and she i doing better.

    Quote:No problems. Perfectly normal. Pullets who first start laying will often lay it outside the nesting box, but they can be easily trained back to their coop. As for the squatting, it's normal too. From the information I've gathered, social chickens squat for their owners- kinda bowing, I think.
