I have 2 barred rocks that we've had for about a year. They came together and are inseparable. We let them out to free range w/supervision around our house and they stay right around the property. About 3 weeks ago I made the BIG MISTAKE of leaving them out while I went to pick up my kids from school, about an hour. Had never had any problems with strange dogs (I have 2 of my own that stay in their fence while the hens are out; don't trust them). Drove up my driveway only to see a large Boxer and his much smaller 'pal' on our property and the Bulldog had feathers in his mouth!! Needless to say I just knew my girls were gone! Long story short, thankfully they didn't touch one of the hens but I couldn't find the other one. Once we got dogs under control and the other hen put away, my daughter and I went to look for 'the body.' We found the other one had wedged herself underneath a segment of fence and against a plantar etc., mostly protected but very much alive thank goodness. Turns out on examining her she had NO WOUNDS at all, just missing a few feathers and was completely traumatized. After putting her inside the run she went in her coop and didn't come out until the next morning. Earlier in the day she was attacked she had laid her usual egg. However, she has not laid another egg since, and again it has been 3 weeks now. She started acting her normal self the next day after the attack and has been fine ever since, just not laying. Anybody had any experience of when something like this happened to them? How long did it take for your hen to start laying again? Thanks so much for your help.
