Hi, I'm Lori and I'm new. I've had three chickens for a year now and couple of weeks ago one of my hens began roosting on the back porch at night instead of in the roost with the other chickens. Once or twice the other two chickens will join her, but she is the one who has been doing it consistently. Let me add that she is a black speckled Plymouth Rock hen and the other two are white Leghorns, and sometimes they seem to stick together and leave her out of things. Any tips on why she is doing this? She watches my dogs go in and out and she has even tried to come into the house and roost at night through the pet door. Any thoughts or suggestions? Is this a lonely chicken?
