    My Coop
    I just adopted a mixed flock of 13 hens. 12 of them have been raised together. One was a rescue hen. I went and checked on them last night, and the 12 were huddled in groups of 3-5, and the one rescue girl was left all alone on the other side of the coop. None of the original flock is pecking on her, which had been the problem with her original flock. Will she be ok roosting alone if it gets cold? I named her Honey..cuz when I saw her all alone on the roost I said "oh honey!".

    As long as she can be warm in the coop away from the weather. She will be ok. Some hens don't bond as well as others, thats all :)
  3. Selena and Midnight did that when introduced into the flock.
