My poor Chickbird. A week and a half ago, my cocker spaniel decided she wanted to eat a chicken, so she grabbed my poor Chickbird by the leg and pinned her down before I could grab her. Normally she leaves the chickens alone, but now we know she can't be trusted, so she's separated from my girls. Chick's leg wasn't broken, but it was badly sprained, and possibly partially dislocated, the vet said it's hard to tell. So she came inside in the crate for several days, until she started bearing weight on it and trying to walk and hop about. I took her outside for some air, and the other birds immediately began trying to peck her face off. So she came back in for several more days, to finish healing until she could hold her own. She still has a slight limp, and she won't extend her wings fully the way the other birds do when they posture at each other. So the birds are still picking on her. I introduced her back in the coop at night when everyone was asleep, and if she keeps to herself in the yard they won't chase her (my birds have the run of the backyard) but when she comes close they peck and chase until she leaves, and last night she didn't even try to get in the coop, she perched on my windowsill and tapped on the glass, like she was begging to come back in Should I bring her back in until that leg heals completely (the vet said it may never fully heal, she may always limp) or should I try to wait it out? Should I consider finding her a new home as a singleton? I just feel so bad for the poor sweet thing, she's my most lovable hen.
