Help with Re-introducing my hen who was sick

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,

 

I am new to all of this. I raised 4 hens from 1 day old, and they have been great! A week ago one of my hen's was just standing around, eyes half closed, so got her to the vet, and now 7 days later with treatment she is all good.

 

I put her back in the coop in a separate area for most of the day today. She paced back and forth looking for a way out and seemed so stressed, so after 4 hours I let her out in a slightly larger area with one of the other hens. They got along all fine, but then the other 2 hens were struggling to find a way in to this smaller area. I eventually had them all together and they all got along. A few hours later I let them have the whole yard together, dust bathing and all. All seems good, but...

 

Do you think I should bring her in again for the night, or let her stay in the coop?

Welcome to BYC :frow​ Glad you joined us! I'd let her spend the night in the coop with the others. It sounds like she is o.k. and everything's fine despite her brief absence from the flock.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
