Is it common for a hen to always be so scared submissive or unsure. My poor girl never been harmed or hurt or we have never given her any reason to be fearful. But when we try and pick her up she runs into a corner and tries to hide until we hold her she seems ok on Saturday my other amberlink roo began to chase her. she ran for her life screaming when I finally got to her she was sitting with her head tucked down just so scared my roo began pulling her feathers and pecking her. I grabbed Her as fast I could chasing my roo away she curled into me she wasn't shaking but she was obviously frightened,I held her a long time. She was fine after a while and just went about her day. I wanted to incorporate her with my roo and other girls but now I'm just not sure about her. Right now she is housed with my silkie roo my Wyandotte hen Rhode Island hen and she is a buff Orpington . What should I do. Is her breed naturally fearful. She is other wise healthy does fine with her house sisters and is unsure of us but accepts our touch. We are never aggressive we handle them carefully always. She goes to a vet for regular care so she pretty healthy Can it be her, she just chicken, some pun intended lol.. Advice please.
