    i have a rhode island red who doesnt go outside alot, when all of my other golden comets go out as soon as i open the door, the rooster sometimes makes her go outside, but it doesnt last for long, she usually goes to sleep earlier than the others and everythang.. are they generally lazy?

    Gosh, My 4 RIR peck around all day long. My 2 White Rocks are the ones lying around all day and are the first to roost.

    I have 6 RIRs. There are 2 that are always the last to go outside in the morning. During the day all of them are outside but they ALL lay around because it's so DANG HOT!!!!

    I have a hen she is about 8 years old I think. She is always the last one out. I can go out at 10 and she's still in there. The door opens at 6:30 every morning as its set on a timer. But she must be a lazy libra and likes to sleep in. I know I do [​IMG]
