    I think your pullet and my pullet must be related. I named my 14 week old Charles Manson because she is sooooo crazy!! She's anti-social... mean and she's determined to have the same spot on the roost each night no matter how distuptive she is to the others. She seems to stand back from the others most of the time too. Some are just weird I guess? The other girls are pretty social and docile, but not Charles!! Ugggh!! And heaven forbid I try to pick her up - she goes nuts!!!! She's the only one who refuses to eat out of my hand too. She better straighten up or she's going on permanent vacation!! Good luck!!

    Watch how she is walking...mine did that about the same age and was all wobbly and it was a calcium deficiency. Give her some oyster shell..see if it helps!
    I also gave mine vitamin E caplets...but the oyster shell was what did the trick. She's FINE now and gorgeous!
    Hope she feels better soon! [​IMG]
