In the Brooder
- Sep 30, 2008
I am brand new here! I just got 16 chickens. I have a hen and rooster Old English (bantam). Everything has been fine, but yesterday I noticed that when I let them out, she seemed to go off by herself and sleep. She would tuck her beak in under her wing and sleep, all by herself. One of my other chickens seems concerned about her. She just hung around her and gave her a little peck once in awhile. This morning, my DH went out to let them out and said she had her wings pointed down, like a turkey strutting he said. I think she is about 5 mo. old. I have been feeding layer crumbles. Please help!
