In the Brooder
- Aug 22, 2013
I have 5 chickens and two weeks ago 4 of them started pecking one of them. They pecked her eye out and many of her feathers are gone. I separated her from the others and she has been separated for two weeks. I didn't know if she would make it, but she is better now. Her head is still swollen on one side and I assume she has no eye on that side. I don't know what to do with her. I let them all out to free range yesterday and at dusk, she went in the coop with the other 4, but got in one of the nesting boxes instead of on the roost like she used to. That's where I found her and realized she had been abused. Will she ever be apart of the group again? Can I nurse her back to health and get her back in with the other 4? I just don't know what to do. Please give me adivce if any of you have experienced this before. Thank you!
