In the Brooder
- Apr 2, 2013
Hi everyone. So, I have this polish hen who has always been a little neurotic. She is a year old. We recently raised three new chicks and have transitioned them to the outdoor coop. They are in a tractor style coop so the other three adult hens can watch them and get use to them before we transition them with the others. Since we have done this, my Polish has gone batty. She constantly walks around the coop like a mad woman. She has completely stopped laying eggs and almost pouts by staying in her coop all day doing nothing. Is this appropriate chicken behavior. We raised a silkie last fall and did the same methods but she never acted this way before. I thought she might be egg bound but I have ruled that out. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
