Yesterday a new addition to my flock escaped from the front yard and found herself the play thing of 3 loveable labradors. No blood was drawn, just a lot of feathers lost and I'm assuming some bruising. She suffered from shock for a while but seems to be eating, drinking and talking again. My question is, now what do I do? She's living in my bathroom in a crate. How long should I keep her inside for? I would like to get her back to the flock quickly so she can integrate.

If she's eating and drinking and o.k. again she can go outside and back to the flock.

Thanks sumi. She is standing up rather gingerly as well. I have a segregation pen with some baby Pekin ducks in it at the moment, I might keep her in there for a few days while we have a bit of a heat wave here in Queensland
