    I have a red sex link hen that turned 1 year old last April. She has not laid an egg in several months. She laid all winter though. She also stays alone most of the day. She eats, and scratches for things in the dirt, but she's just acting odd. At night, I have to walk her to the coop. She only has one long tail feather left, and the rest of her body looks like she is missing feathers here and there. The rooster has been a bit excited lately, and paying more attention to the hens...
