She is in the regular coop with all the other chickens. She is a foot off the floor with her chick in a nest box.
What about food and water? Should I move them to my regular space that I use for brooding (a big horse watering metal container)?
Kind of caught off guard.

Will leave her in there tonight but I have to figure something out.

Thanks in advance

I would move them to a safe location where they can bond for a bit. Maybe section them off with chicken wire so they can see the rest of the flock but no touchie.
