My two idiot dogs combined with an idiot chicken made for quite an exciting Saturday morning about 4 weeks ago. The dogs were holding the chicken down and ripping her feathers out. That came with skin, fat, and a great deal of squawking. When my son found her she was just sitting on the ground and quite beaten up. She lost all of the feathers on her back and about half of the skin. There were also raw spots on a wing and her neck. Things looked bleak and I told my son not to expect her to survive. Well, 4 weeks later, lots of bandages and neosporin, isolation from the flock, and a cozy home in a tub in the basement, and she still lives. At last check, feathers had grown out about an inch in all of the injured areas and she can fly. I'm ready to get her out of the basement because it smells like a 4-H barn down there but I'm concerned about reintroducing her to the flock. Usually, flocks will kill a weak or injured bird. After 4 weeks of nurse maid duties I don't want to lose her! Any suggestions would be exceptionally appreciated. We live in southern Ohio and the weather is 60 during the day and high 30's at night. Thanks!
