Injured chook. How long can I keep her away from the flock?
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
Chickens are flock animals, so ideally, they need to be with other birds - but she can survive without them.The longer you keep her away from the flock, the more likely it is that she will have integration issues when re-joining them. Not sure what the problem was, but if there are no signs of blood, and you have multiple food stations, so she can eat then i would suggest putting her back with the flock as soon as possible. If you don't feel this is appropriate and you wish to keep her segregated, then it would be an idea, when putting her back with the flock, to treat her as a new flock member.
