Okay so I already had a "flock" of game chickens consisting of a rooster, hen, and four chicks. My dad had about 14 white chickens that were given to him by the school. This was a little much for him so I took in two of the hens and added them to my flock. Well, the two I took seem rather lazy. They are content with laying next to the food and water all day and doing nothing more. The other chickens love to get out and scratch during the day.. How can I encourage the other two to do the same? It can't be healthy for them to lay in one place all day and they are also poop where they lay. I've had to physically carry them outside at times but even then they will find a shady place and just sit. Is this a breed issue? This is my first time raising chickens so any tips or advice will be greatly appreciated.
