    Hello,

    I have a chicken that was sick. I isolated her for about a week. Now that she seems healthy again I am trying to reintroduce her to the flock, but one of the other chickens keeps trying to jump on her back and peck her head. Any ideas on what is going on and what I can do to solve the problem.

    Thanks,

    Sean

    I just use a piece of mesh and keep it divided off in the same pen until they get used to its presence again and that usually works.
