My flock has an 8X8 henhouse with an attached 10X 20 run. In the mornings I go out and sprinkle scratch around the run for them, mostly so they'll have something to do when they're not freeranging. But... lately every time I go out to visit them, they're all standing around in the house! And when I have a snack, the rooster's always the first to venture out of the house and the ladies follow. Could it be he's not letting them out most of the time? It's true it's cold out, but it's not that cold. I'm wondering if the rooster's getting a little crazed with his protective duties. I worry because they're losing feathers on their backs and I've seen them eat feathers that fall to the floor, and suddenly eating eggs again, too. Maybe I have some nutritional problems with my organic feed. Any advice to return my flock to normalcy? Oh, yeah -- I heard coyotes twice in the last week. Maybe they heard them too?
