    Our Amelia got attacked by a dog on Friday. She's been in a large dog kennel since then. She's doing fine, eating, drinking. Obviously she has wounds. As long as we bring the others inside the coop, can we let her roam for a bit?

    If she were mine, I would let her out for some exercise. Depending upon the nature of her injuries, I might even try to re integrate her into the flock.

    I think it would be fine to let her out to roam for a while. Just don't let her overdo it if she has leg injuries.

    I think her legs are fine. The wounds are on her back and near the base of her wing.
