    I have 2 marans about 10 mos. thye were laying but II moved them into another flock w/ a roo and 3 younger hens. They've stopped laying and don't roost w/ "Eric" or the new girls. While they range together they don't "hang" together if you know what I mean. Eric chases the girls in the morning but they run away. Will they get together eventually? I hope to breed and hatch marans this spring.

    Give it time. It's also common for laying to slow down or stop this time of year.
