Hi everyone! Thanks for the suggestions and advice from my last posts. Chelsea is doing very well! She’s regained her full appetite and is very mobile in my house! She likes to chase my rabbit around too. (Poor lil guy.) Anyway, it is now very cold where we live, tonight is the first temp drop of the winter season, down to 27 and holding strong. My poor girl is Very bald!! Her whole back even under her wings and all the way up the right side of her neck to almost the back of her head is missing all feathers. She’s just grown back skin in certain areas, scabs formed and came off nicely. Luckily I see little pin holes where feathers are forming so she won’t stay bald all over but now I’m concerned because of weather. I’ve let her out a couple times for a little while to peck around and dig with her 3 sisters and each time they’ve attacked her!!!(I free range in my yard that is fenced) But now I’m worried to let her back in the coop because they have been so quick to attack her. So I guess my question is when is it appropriate to reintroduce her to the flock?? And when should I let her in this weather because she’s so bald?? My husband is getting sick of chasing her around to pick up chicken poop all over the house! Lol We kept our little starter coop that has 2 enclosed runs on either side, one covered, but she would be alone in there all night and it’s very cold now. So I could insulate with some bales of hay around it and pine shavings inside but again, she’s alone. Makes me nervous to have her sleep alone all night in a cold little coop with no one to snuggle and big huge (1/2 body) bald patches. Any suggestions to put her back in gen pop? Should I keep her in my house until she has feathers?? I sewed a chickensaddle out of cotton cloth but I haven’t tried it yet. She’s still very itchy from her scabs and I’m afraid will just peck and roll it off. Any helpful tips welcome!! What have you done with a bald chicken in winter??
