We have 8 pullets all thriving up with the big girls and boys. One however is having issues. She hides in the corner and buries her head in the corner of the side yard, she doesn’t wander around much just a little bit(she doesn’t explore much). She won’t walk up the ramp at dusk to go inside at night with the other ones. We have to carry her in at night, and then when she’s inside she won’t fly up and get on the roost like all the other pullets can. She is a polish and she is about 18 weeks old. She’s super sweet but slow on the uptake. She eats and drinks ok. She isn’t allowed to free range yet. Just five of the 8 Pullets are allowed to free range, the three smaller ones are still kind of confined to the side yard for now. In a couple of weeks, her two best friends are going to be free ranging with the others, but I am afraid to let her out of the side yard. Will she catch up developmentally with the others?
