    Hi everyone, new chicken momma here and I'm worried about one of my ladies. My chickens are 7 weeks old and one of my reds was going BONKERS in the coop tonight. Running in circles and banging into the coop walls! I dont want her to hurt herself. Whats up with this behavior?

    Sounds like she's frightened for some reason.

    I have no idea why! Everyone was up and roosting for the night and then she was going spastic. So i went and checked a bit later and she was roosting by herself away from everyone
