Help! One of my girls was attacked and killed by a fox a month ago. She was not the alpha hen, but the rest of the grande dames seem to be in mourning. This all happened just as I integrated three new girls into the bunch. No one has laid an egg since the fox attack. Is this grief? Is this stress from the new girls? I don't let them roam unchaperoned anymore. So...their free-ranging is curtailed. Can it be an adjustment to an am/pm stroll vs. hours on the lamb? I'm at a loss.
