Hello, I need advice! My 7 year old Delaware Frida has been sleeping on the floor of the coop and not roosting with the other girls, who are a group of 3 young Australorps with which she gets along well. About 2 weeks ago we had to euthanize our other Delaware hen, who was Frida's companion since chickhood. Frida has always been the top chicken in the group so I am fairly sure she is not being bullied and we have a very roomy double perch for these gals. During the day they all act normally and there is no pecking or bullying. The older girls always separated themselves in the yard from the younger Australorps to a certain extent but they always roosted together until Frida's friend died. I am concerned that she is isolating herself, especially since the weather is very cold and she is sleeping far from the heatlamp. I have tried putting her on the roost in the night so she will stay warm but when I check later she is on the floor again. She eats well and seems normal during the day but my hubby fears she may suddenly become ill like her freind did. Is she sick? Can she be grieving her companion? Please help, I dont want her to be suffering. Thank you!
