    Recently I lost two hens to a raccoon that somehow got into the coop. The other two survived. The smaller hen, Stroodle is being bullied by the other still even after their loss. Stroodle has been abnormally loud though and has been laying grayish long eggs. Near night time she stays near my front door and squawks very loudly and looks around as if shes looking for something. I don't know if separating them would be a good idea since they are both very lonely..any suggestions?
