Hi I have 15 hens and 3 roosters. (One is leaving next week as he targets my 4 year old, and I am debating whether to keep one or two around.) All of the girls are OK with the boys except one. She used to be the dominant hen, and at some point in the fall, she stopped coming out of the coop. There were a couple girls molting, so I thought it was the case with her. But she never came back out, and it has been several months now. I have feed and water on a small shelf outside a pop door, so she eats and drinks just fine. She seems healthy, except she is missing a lot of feathers off the back of her head (maybe getting picked on?). She comes out to see me every morning, and sleeps in line with all the others, many times next to a rooster and it doesn't appear to be a problem. I don't notice any extra aggressive fights in the evening when they go into the coop, and she is not on the bottom rung. The problem becomes apparent when I take her out on a nice day (they free-range on the weekend). If I put her out to take a dust-bath, the roosters will stalk her and if I step away, they all chase her and jump on her at the same time. She is now so terrified that she will fly back up onto my shoulder if she sees roosters anywhere near, or run full tilt and hide anywhere she can find. None of the hens show any aggressive behavior toward her, but she has clear panic in her eyes when the roosters spot her. I feel really bad that her life has become so limited. Does anyone think that if I pare it down to one rooster that she may be able to re-adjust and tolerate him? Or does she have permanent Chicken Panic Disorder? I wonder if a good Chicken Therapist could help her work through her fears.
