I have a hen that is acting strange. Her name is Dumplins It all started about 3weeks ago when I found her in a nest box with her shadow "Teriyaki" Teriyaki was dead and seemed as if Dumplins was standing guard and didn't want me to move her. Every since than she started hangout alone and had nothing to do with the other chickens. She doesn't return to the coop at night and has taken up residence on the other side of the property. I know they get a little shy when molting but this seems extreem. Could she have had such a bond with Teriyaki that she's depressed? Anyone have any ideas?
