Last Thursday (not this past Thursday, the one before that), I bought two pullets. I'm not sure that they are the same age, but they are from the same source. Previously they free-ranged all day long, with zero human contact. One of them, now named Cora, is a Rhode Island Red, and while bullied by my 24 week old BB hen and BO rooster fits in pretty nicely. The other, named Mabel (an Easter Egger), isn't so lucky. She looks smaller than Cora, and the lovely people here on BYC said she was between 17 to 20 weeks old. Here she is: The thing is, she isn't really fitting in. The day she was brought here, she escaped and spent three days free in my back yard. I have no earthly idea how she survived the hawks, cats, dogs, fisher cats, etc..., but thats a different story. Now that I finally tricked her into coming back, she has been hiding in the bottom of the coop, away from the other three. I've pretty much left her alone, but when I extend my hand with treats or feed she will shy away and freak out in the corner (meanwhile Cora now lets me pet her). Whenever Mabel tries to get close to my BO and BB, they run her off or peck her. But I haven't seen her try to get close in a day or two. Basically, I'm concerned. Is this just life at the bottom of the pecking order? Or will she eventually learn to venture out from under the A-Frame coop. Is it just because she has abruptly gone from free ranging to living in an enclosed run? Any advice on how to tame her/ how to help her fit in would be greatly appreciated. Help Mabel and I out!
