Customer Question

I have a 1 year old orbington hen. I moved for 1 week and brought the coop with me. My chicken refused to come out of coop. A week later I moved back. My chicken comes out only for a short time then goes back in coop. She spends all her time in the coop and hasn't laid eggs. I'm worried. What can be wrong with her?

Hi there, I am not an expert in bird behavior but I will do my best to help you and your chicken out. Is she eating well and otherwise acting normally? is she an only chicken? are her stools normal?
