    Hi All, [​IMG]

    I was wondering...Do hens get love sick?? [​IMG]

    I gave away one of my roos today because I had too many.
    One of my hens later acted like she was lost, then at bed time
    she had a hard time going to bed.

    For those who have had this happen before. Will she get over it.
    Is she love sick?

    I feel so bad, but I just could not keep three roosters.


    Thanks

    I don't have an answer but poor hen! Also, I think that is too cute if she is love sick.

    I had three EE pullets and a EE roo that all hatched at the same time. They spent all of their time together and roosted together. He ended up a bit aggressive and got sent on his way. They were lost for about a week not wanting to free range or get on the roosts at night. They have adjusted now it just took some time.

    Thanks, so I just need to wait a week or so and she will
    be back to normal.
