I am new to raising these wonderful things called chickens. My grandson wants to be in 4H and so we have begun our adventure together Our chickens are now 3 months One turned out to be a rooster and living in the city we were not permitted to keep him ( I must say it broke my heart as he was very love able). I found him a home on a 3 acres where he will have a happy life with other chickens. But since he's been gone my girls are very lazy, they don't walk about the yard as much they stay close to the coop. Is this odd behavior? Do they miss him or is this just a coincidence since we've been having some warmer days lately?
