Last August our dog badly injured one of my hens. I had to keep her in our basement to care for her all fall and winter. She has enough feathers to be outside again. What is the best way to re-introduce her to her flock? She does has a companion hen who was injured early last fall and I have kept them together. I have a large dog crate I can put them out in the barn in, just wondering how long I should keep them crated before allowing them out with the Rooster, hens and Peafowl? To make things a bit more complicated one of my Peahens is nesting on 6 eggs- re-introducing these two hens- will that be a bad situation for her? The Peafowl are definitely the dominant birds in the barn Any suggestions are truly appreciated!
