Hello everybody! We have a Dominique chicken, who is at the bottom of our pecking order of 9 guineas, 7 chickens and a rooster. We got her from a family with three times as many birds, and frankly she wasn't given any special care or attention and was in bad shape when we got her. Her health was getting better, but she never willingly leaves the chicken coop, no matter what treat I offer her. She always sits on a perch at the top of the coop and only comes down for maybe 10-20 minutes a day to eat and drink water from the feeders. She has a friend (another Dominque) that stays in the coop for most of the morning with her, and then leaves to patrol the yard with the main flock. It is getting to the point where the chicken who never leaves the coop has scaly leg mites and extremely long toenails from lack of use. Her feathers are ruffled and unclean and she squints. Other than that she seems healthy. If I force her to leave the coop, she turns around and runs back to it as fast as she can, often being chased by the rooster. What should I do? Is our rooster scaring her? He is a very sweet bird and the other ladies have little to no problem with him.
