Hi y'all. I'm new here so hope I am posting this is the correct place. I often come browsing for answers to questions I have that someone else has already asked, but this is the first time I haven't really found my answer, so here is my question.. We added a blue Cochin rooster and two hens to our very small flock of 2 red star hens and a buff orpington hen on Saturday. (We moved a few months ago, and predators got our other hens and rooster. Now that we have a much more secure coop and better fencing we are ready to grow our flock again.) These birds are the laziest I have ever seen! The rooster seemed a bit lame on Saturday when we got him home. He had a shaky leg and would just sit on the ground. I had to pick him up and put him on the roost in the hen house at bedtime. Late Sunday morning - like almost noon - they all 3 finally decided to come off of roost, but wouldn't venture too far from the door of the coop even though they have a huge yard they could have explored. The rooster's leg seemed to bother him less, but he wasn't very sure-footed. He followed the girls around a little, but they mostly just sat around on the ground all afternoon. All the chickens we have had in the past have been very vocal and eager to forage and explore new areas. Our previous roosters were great about watching their surroundings, talking to the girls, and finding bugs for them. These birds just sit around, eat a little grain if it's right in front of them, and barely make a sound. One of the hens did however lay an egg on the ground Saturday afternoon, which I thought was a good sign even though the shell was a little thin and it was pretty small. When we asked the man we got them from how old they are, he said they hatched last year and this would be their first laying season. Did we get dud birds or is this breed really that lazy?
