Hello I didn't find anything near my issue and I'm new to the threads. I have gotten much help just reading here in the past though. I have 3 gold laced Wyandotte hens (Saffy, Lavender and Violet). We raised them from 1 day old peeps in the house and transferred them at 7 weeks to the outside coop. All went well but Violet was always bullied a bit and remained smaller than the other 2. She was always first at the food bowl, 1st at the kitchen door to beg and when stressed would follow me at my heels around the yard cawing. She was the last to lay by 2 months, lays sporadically and molted last and was the only one to actually go bald. Then in the spring of this year we suddenly got a ton of predators ( we live in a suburb) and we had to quickly take action against the rat who tunneled under the coop. There was extensive damage and we ended up moving the coop about 20 feet to dig out the tunnels and fill it in. It took about 3 days and we moved the coop right back. During that time Violet was inconsolable. She would stand every night in th coops old spot and just bawl. I'd pick her up, walk her around the yard and put her in the coop and that seemed to be it. Then we got mice and the issue got out of hand. Violet never seemed the same after that. Now 2 weeks ago a friend who has chickens needed to get rid of 2 and we took them (2 months old) and they are in a cage near the big coop. My big girls have not mingled with them yet but are awar of them and tolerant at this point. Violet cried the whole first night until dawn but quieted down the next day when Saffy and Lavender had enough of it and started pecking at her. She has since followed me around, pecked me til bloody on my feet and hands, tried to eat my clothing, and all three have stopped laying. Saffy is in molt so no surprises there. But Violet seems to be laying around more and more in the yard. She's not sleeping, just being very quiet. All three have been eating less this last week. And then I had to trim the hedge and they refuse to go back under it. So my question is this- is this all just stress from these multiple things in a row or could something really be wrong with Violet? She has no other sick symptoms. I'm worried that she'll lose it when the bew coop comes this week and they all gave to move into it (the current one is snug with just three so we got a bigger one). Please do share any experience and suggestion! Thanks!!
