    Hen was pecking all the others, so I isolated her two weeks ago. Since then she has stopped laying, and now does not seem to eat much.
    I tried to re introduce her, but she started plucking the others again.
    Do you think she is stressed, from being isolated, and that's why she is not eating, or laying. Or is there more to it, do you think.
