    I have a four mount old hen, her bff is a roo that she hatched with. They became buddies from the start and the other two roo's hooked up. I found homes for the other two (who needs three rooster) i keep the one hen and her and bff. I went and got three new pullets keep everyone apart for a mount and just introduced the three new ones to the big coop Friday. Everything went well i thought,
    My birds free range if im home. So Monday i got home by around 2:00 and she was up against her mirror sound asleep. Everyone came out but her. I went to check on her and got her out. She came down the hill went under my truck an went back to sleep. Now she is just staying in the coop all day, sleeping all the time. The rest are doing good and i see no problems. The roo did his job and chased the three new ones around a couple of days and is even roosting next to one. She stayed back while he was letting everyone know this was his yard. He has now started to chase her around also. Hope all this sounds normal don't want to lose my green legged hen. She is my favorite. Any opinion or suggestion would be helpful.
    Thanks
