Aloha all. Just signed up for this forum specifically for advice on this scenario. So, I live in Hawaii, where wild chickens roam around everywhere. I have a small free ranging flock of 6 young hens and one rooster. The hens are Ameraucana and barred rock, 3 each. The rooster is the only speckled Sussex we raised from chicks that survived. Anyways, the girls are getting right around laying age, and one of my barred rocks has been straying from the flock. It took me a minute to figure it out, but it seems that she's been hanging around with the wild rooster across the street. She has started roosting with him too, apparently. She just came back this morning and was all wet and messed up looking. Not injured or anything, just looked a mess. I put her back in the PVC hoop coop with food and water and closed her in... For now. Not sure what to do... I would prefer to keep her part of the flock and encourage her to lay in the same box as the rest of the girls, but it might be an exercise in futility. I had the thought to let my rooster in the coop with her for some "getting to know each other" time as well, to try reprogram her habits a little... Is any of this worthwhile, or am I just meddling uselessly in the chicken soap opera going on? Thanks in advance for any advice.
