I stopped my last hen from free-ranging and locked her in the coop with our two little ones (they're almost 9 weeks). All three of them are getting along fine, the two younger ones tend to stay on the other side of the pen and have not really socialized with her. I assume they will sort things out in time. My question is this. In the eight days Betty has been in the pen she has not laid any eggs. She is not molting and not broody, just defiant I guess?? She is around 3-4 years old and has laid before, but like I said she hasn't laid in a week's time and she was missing for six days before that.
