Help with Re-introducing my hen who was sick

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

I have raised 4 hens from 1 day old, and just dealt with my first sick hen last week.

 

SHe has been in isolation for 7 days, I put her back in the pen in a separate area today. After 4 hours of her pacing and looking stressed, I let he into a larger area with one of the other hens.

 

All good, until the other two hens were getting frustrated at not being in the same area it seemed. They were trying so hard to get past the fence. I eventually just let them join all together, no issues, and later today let them have the yard back, dirt bathing etc.. Seems great.

 

Question is should I bring her inside again for the night, or let her roost with the others?

 

It just seems so rushed.

I wouldn't worry, sounds like it went well. Morning will tell for sure.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Oh thanks for the quick reply!  I am probably more of a worry wart that I need to be about the whole thing.
