We have noticed that one our hens is not laying and just stands in the corner cubicle of the pen. Thinking it might be egg bound, I put her in warm water for 30 minutes, and took her back to the pen. As soon as I put her down, Sonny, our RIR rooster, took after her & she ran back to the cubicle. Now, I'm beginning to wonder if she's afraid of him. Do you think I should separate Sonny from the two RIR's? And could she be stressed & not laying? The other hen is fine and lays an egg a day.
