    My hen has a cut on her waddles. Does she need to be isolated? I cleaned the wound, and now she is enjoying her backyard-range time while the others watch jealously from behind their fence. I will post a picture in a second .

    If I were you, I would probably keep them separated for 24 hours- more as a precaution than anything else. Also, if I were you, I might spray some Veticeryn on the wound.
