I am beginning to think my injured hen will not get better, but she is good. She eats, drinks, chirps, is a good egg layer, and begs to be part of the flock again. BUT, she knows she isn't, they just beat her up. When I tried today, she just stood behind me as if I was her protector, and I was. LOL Now I have 2 choices.....the first one I just don't want to do. The second is, how can I build a "cheap" low level, to the ground level, mini coop to sit near the other one, and her to have a small seperated section of the outdoor run to herself, but up against the other hens, so she can talk chicken gossip, but not be beat up. ??? Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I have limited but some access to pallets. I bought a premade nest box for her, but all she did was kick allthe shavings out of it, and then trip on it, so I removed it. Winter is fast approaching, and she is in need of a place to spend her time keeping warm,and NOT being attacked. Sorry, winter is fast approaching because I am running out of $$ and time. Thought about getting one more hen to be her buddy? But where?
