Ok… I have a dilemma. I need advice from people who have experience. I have to get rid of one hen. We are only allowed 3 in Portland. I bought Bella, an EE, a couple of weeks ago and I really love her. But the other 3 totally ignore her. Right now, the 3 of them are in the coop (it's raining here) and Bella is in the covered run all alone. She's ALWAYS alone. They just won't let her into their little group. My Barred Rock Kallie is laying regularly and has been for 4 weeks! My Red Sex Link Sissy is laying regularly. Bella is laying regularly. My other BR Hattie is the same age as Kallie, born the same day, but has NOT begun laying. I'd prefer to let HER go and keep Bella. But I'm very attached to all three and I guess I'm humanizing them. If I break up the Three Amigos by selling the non-laying BR, will they be more apt to accept Bella? I'd really love to keep HER. If not, I guess I'll have to sell her. I have two people interested. One person has 17 hens. One person has 2. I'm inclined to sell her to the lady with 2, if I have to sell her. What would YOU do?
