No she isn't injured. She had a few feathers missing and did have some scratches but nothing major. She is in with the rest of the flock now and has been for the past 6 days. But they're still presumably picking on her enough that she flees up to the roost all day. I can't take the roost out because its part of the structure. Tonight I'll take her and a couple of the other super docile ones and put them in the chicken tractor. that way she's at least not isolated but is away from the main flock. There has never been anything like this ever in my flock. theres 16 of them, 2 are roosters, and they all just live happily together. Or at least they did until the hawk attack. :(
