    The chickens we got last week I've just been told are around a year old. That's all fine by me apart from them being a little wary. But I've noticed that there's one hen that doesn't seem to want to join in that often with the other 4. I don't think she's getting bullied or anything because when she does join in with the others she's fine, doesn't get pecked or anything.

    Is there anything I can do so she isn't so shy? Is it maybe just me?

    she might be the hen-boss. Hen bosses don't join in too much and get really crabby when someone goes near their space.

    no problems here it seems. [​IMG]
