We moved 6 month old hens yesterday our home with the coop. I noticed the rooster chasing and pulling our one of the hens feathers and then this morning some of them had diarrhea. Is this normal because of the move?

they will be under some stress for sure - that alone can cause issues.

keep a close eye on them - they will work out a new pecking order in about a week - but if you see blood on any of them you need to isolate them.

I would give them a vitamin/electrolyte solution in their water. Everything stresses a chicken out, epecially a huge change in their environment such as a move.
