    Thx Ms. Sue I was confused with the question to, mainly because well...many different have different opinions but also a hyphin can be used in many ways.

    It doesn't need a hyphen because "well" is an adverb which modifies the adjective (participle) "behaved" -- a hyphen here would be superfluous!

    The website also says the hyphen is unnecessary when it follows the modified word.
