I have a few questions, and I would love some help! I have a flock of 10 and I have recently added 2 more. They were about 3 months old when i added them. They were constantly getting pecked on and hurt. I know that there is a pecking order and what not. but my hens pecked the one chicken till her back end was pecked to the meat. She wouldn't run and hide she would just sit there and take it. She is a very sweet and docile chicken. loves people and always wants to be held! So........ I just rinsed it with warm water and separated her from them. She has healed up nicely except for her left leg now is funny. not broke but when she tries walking she hops. It's almost like it has no feeling. She has also started to crow in the morning?!?! she is a hen and not a rooster. I have kept her separated for about 17 days now until the scab was gone and healed. I now but her in a smaller cage in the coop to try and get the other hens to used to her again, but take her out at night. I guess I am just wondering if I am doing the right thing by keeping her separated? Is it normal for hens to try and crow? I have no clue about her left leg, I am wondering if the hens pecked her to where they hit a nerve or something and that its now damaged? This is her! Her name is Lucy!
