Hi Friends, Been reading on here for months. Thanks for all your amazing knowledge! Your assistance has been very helpful in my pursuit of raising backyard chickens. Here's my question: I have three hens. Two buffs and 1 blue cochin. They've been laying since February. The blue cochin, Snoopy, stopped roosting about two weeks ago. I feared she was sick, as she stopped laying eggs, and hides in her nesting box all day. I bring her out to eat and drink (they are free range in my yard) and then she goes right back into her box. I bathed her in hot water for a half hour on two consecutive days fearing (as I'd read in other posts) that she had an egg stuck up in her thingie-thingie. To be honest she seems perfectly healthy, and I fear she's become odd girl out - and has, yes, I'm about to say it - "the depression". She really is fine when I make her stay out of the coop. She eats, she scours for bugs, she follows the other girls, but the second I open the coop she runs back inside. The other two don't really peck at her but she just seems, well, sad. Am I crazy person? Am I anthropomorphizing my beloved Snoopy? Any suggestions? Thank you.
