We have the sweetest Golden Laced Wyandotte hen, but she prefers to be with humans rather than the flock. Our other chickens do not pick on her, but she is scared to death of them. She runs and hides if any of them come near her. We have two roosters and eleven hens altogether. The other ones more or less hang in groups. They are all free range. Goldie is so submissive and because she is always alone, I worry about a predator getting her. She is super tame and actually likes to be held. Earlier, she was in the house with me for about a half hour, then I brought her back outside. I honestly think she would be happy as a pet, but not sure how feasible that would be. Was thinking of getting a large bird cage and keeping her on our screen porch, taking her out several times a day to socialize. Wondering if anyone else has had a hen like Goldie and kept it as a pet. We just got her about two weeks ago, so it is possible she might eventually work her way into the flock, but so far she would rather be with our family and our dogs. She actually prefers being with the dogs over the other chickens! Last night when we did our nightly roost check, she was no where to be found. She came walking up to my husband this morning, but I'm worried next time she will be gone! Appreciate any advice. She is the sweetest thing!
