Don't know what to do!

My hen got attacked by my dog a couple of days ago. She is doing great, but I don't know when to put her back with the flock. I let her free range with them every day, but she just sorta tries to disappear. The rest of the flock is nice to her as far as I know.

Can you cage her with food and water inside the coop with the rest?

She may be wandering off to go broody, which would be of no connection to the dog attack.

 

Scared birds tend to flock together for protection, so if she isn't being overly hazed, my thoughts is she is looking for a nest.

 

I agree, it wouldn't hurt to lock her up in the coop for a few days to make sure she is okay and to connect her closer to the coop if she is contemplating brooding.

Ok. I'll try putting her in the coop with rest of them tomorrow night. Thanks for the help. Any more advice is welcome.
