    UPDATE 10/3 w/ VIDEO: Introduction ACCOMPLISHED!

    As long as the separation is under 2 weeks, they don't forget each other. All I can say is the one I removed for her injuries is under constant attacks....mine was only in seclusion about 2 weeks, and they are after her constantly. Now maybe part of my issue is her being hurt, and as new as I...

What is odd is her right leg is injured, and she can't keep her left eye open. I carried her for a while, and then came up to...

    Is she on her way out?? (pics added)

    I have her in the coop, with her meds mixed in her treats. The others are locked out. She nibbled it, but then went to lay down. Closed her eyes and that was that. I left her that way, so she could have some peace. The others have food and water outside, and it is a chilly day here. A 30...

    Is she on her way out?? (pics added)

    My 6 month old NHR, that has been dealing with a leg injury, was recently introduced back into the flock. Not an easy task, and because she is still limping, she is always a target of being chased, or pecked. Nothing severe, but enough. Her comb and wattles are still bright red, but today, she...

    Can a chicken sprain it's leg?UPDATE

    If you seperate her, be aware that the others will treat her as a new hen and will peck/chase her if she's reintroduced with them, especially if she's still limping. This part I know 1st hand. Had mine seperated for 2 weeks, due to the same thing....limping, and it was her right leg. No sig of...
