I got home today and immediately started tearing up as soon as I got out of the car because I could see my favorite chicken hanging upside down off the roost dead. I ran down to the run and swung open the door and gently lifted her up and she turned her head to the side to look at me. Her legs were a little stiff so I took her up to the barn to examine her. As soon as I set her down on the planting table she stood up shook herself off and started inspecting me! She walked around good and like nothing was wrong so I took her back outside and immediately all three of our roosters tried to jump on her and one of them started mating her. Her feathers were flying everywhere so I kept nudging him with my shoes until he got off of her and then she circled me and jumped up and perched on my shoulder. She would not get back down with the other chickens... once I got her back in the barn she hopped back on my planting table and pecked up some food I had dropped their at some point this week. I put some food out for her on a paper towel and ran into the house to get her some water. When I got back out to the barn she was roosting on the weed-eater... I took her down from there and got one of the little roosts for her and put it up high (evidently not high enough though because she flew from my planting table up to ceiling height and roosted on the very top rung of a ladder that was hanging from the wall. I had tried to put her in our quarantine/brooder box with another chicken that is about to go back outside (the chicken already on the box had gotten scratched up on her back several weeks ago we were letting all her feathers grow back), but the current resident was not welcoming and tried to grab her around the neck and force her out of the box. My husband and I are guessing that she got startled or else just slipped and her talon got caught and she just stayed still for however long until I got home. I had always heard that you should hang them upside down to butcher, but I had no idea they pretty much became catatonic.... Also do you all think the other roosters went after her because they had thought she was dead and assumed she was some strange chicken? She is fairly young and just about to start laying (her comb has gotten much bigger this week).
