I have two birds that are just so super timid. They are lovely little Ameraucanas, about 30 weeks or so, in a mixed flock of 8 ranging from 20 weeks to 18 months. They've all been free-ranging together since August, have been sharing a fenceline since June, and have been sharing the run and coop for a few weeks now, but I think they're getting picked on. They spend a lot of time in their coop. They are also the only ones that the baby roo is trying to breed yet (though I'm sure the others are close behind, he is only just starting to become rooster-y). What kinds of things do you put in your run to make timid birds feel safer? What kinds of hiding places or toys or other distractions? I'm thinking of closing off the big girls for part of the day to let the Ameraucana's be with their flock unmolested (the 3 older birds can be real assholes sometimes). What else can I do to help them?
