I just bought a new teenage chicken. I put her in our old hen house thinking I would keep her away from my flock until I knew for sure she was healthy. But I feel really bad for her. She is all alone and seems so frightened. I bought her from a guy who had a million birds. His Craigslist ad seemed like she was on a sweet little hobby farm but the more I looked around the more and more and more birds I saw. Not to mention the 8 million babies they had in boxes in a shed. Yuck. But I had driven a long way to get her and I felt obligated to buy. I am not good at being rude to anyone's face. So with a net he caught her and off we went. And into isolation she has landed at my house. Today she must have flown out of the coop and one of my Great Pyrenees dogs caught her. I got the chicken from him and she is fine other then being even more stressed out. I clipped her wings on one side, and put chicken vet rx on her comb and under her neck feathers. I put her back into the old coop but I am wondering if I should just put her in my new coop and pasture so she can be around other chickens. Do chickens do poorly when they are isolated? I have had her for about 4 days now. Thanks!
