My OH is looking after the neighbour's hens during the holiday period.
It appears one of the hens has been ostracised by the others. During the day there are wee groups of hens outside, except this one hen on its own. At night the hens are all huddled together on their perches, except this one which is as far away from the others as possible.
Is it a loner or do the others not like this hen? I wonder what happened. 🐔

This video shows a successor model, the 895, in operation. Note how quiet it is inside the cab.
