1. I have a sick hen. She is seperated and we are thinking of keeping her seperated for around 2 or 3 weeks so we don't accidently eat her eggs if she starts laying again. We do sell our eggs. Will the she have a hard time going back in with the flock or will they just let her back in? She has been with them since we first got them. 2. We have some barred rocks we got late september or October I cant really remember. Anyways they are in a smallish pen in the coop with the big girls and I would like to get them out as I am afraid it may be stunting a their growth. my problem I tried intergrating them last week. I was a little busy that day and when I went down to the coop the older girls had killed one of the babies. So now their are four. I am worried about them getting hurt by the mean older girls, but I am also worried about their health. When should I try putting them in with the girls again? And how should I go about doing it? I have done it before but the babies were closer in age to the older girls. The first time both chicks were roosters, and the second time their was one rooster and I think having a rooster helped. This time their is no rooster so I am at a total loss.
