    Hi everybody! [​IMG]

    I have a quick question. I just added a new hen to my flock and she gets along good with my other younger hens (except for the occasional pecking order tiffs). But everytim I go out there she is pacing up and down the run fence and then goes and scratches around then comes back to pacing....

    Has anyone ever heard of one doing this?

    Any opinions or answers greatly appreciated! [​IMG]

    Sounds like she wants something. She may want out or just want a treat. Mine pace the fence when they need more water and when I'm late feeding them.
