Yesterday, I added copious amounts of red pepper to the feed to keep the blasted squirrels out. Last night, I dewormed. This morning, everybody was on the floor hanging out but not eating. When I stepped into the coop, there were a few who went for the feeder but didn't eat much. I opened the chicken door and went to feed the horses. Afterward, I checked the coop and everybody was still inside hanging out (except one rooster who I think was trying to call everyone out). They're all out now, but did I put out too much red pepper? I've read that it doesn't bother them but now I'm not so sure. Can deworming leave them a bit lethargic at first? Maybe they were just afraid I was going to put something else down their hatches.
