    I've recently added two new pullets to my cockerel bantam and ex batt hen she has been doing the norm being her usual bossy self and sorting the youngsters out except today the cockerels gone off with the young ones and she's tucked up in a corner and completely not herself what's happened ?! Or is she just poorly / old she hasn't laid an egg since the newbies arrived is that normal ?!!

    She could be bored because she has No one taking care of her showing her things.
