I began raising my first flock this past April. Started out with ten, lost the silkie first day, and got rid of the two roosters (can't have them in my neighborhood). Now I have two barred rocks, two Americaunas, two reds and one white crested polish.. The polish removed herself from the others in the beginning... I open run at least 5 days a week so they can venture around backyard eating grass and bugs.. She doesn't care to come out until i make her. She finds a spot hidden in our plants usually by the basil and sits there all day. Won't come when I'm feeding mealworms or any leftovers. Doesn't eat with the others. She isn't necessarily being picked on by the others just completely ignored. Depressed? I've heard that maybe it's always a good idea to have even numbers.. (Which is why i started out with ten) The others very noticeably stay together who are of the same breed but all play together. She looks as if she's not growing anymore.. Much smaller than the others and much skinnier.. I feed them grain, oyster shell, scratch, treats, and LOTS of leftovers including the grass/plants and bugs. The others already started laying.. Found one egg that was with no shell and no rubber lining.. Just like you would crack an egg on the pan in the nesting box.. Almost think it's hers.. Anyone else experiences this?
