It's not so much when...as how...and why.

Your question is too simple to give an answer.

Figuring out why she was bullied and fixing that problem,

then learning about how to proceed with re-integration is what's needed here.

 

More info on your flock, coop/run and details of the bullying event(s) are needed.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
