I posted a week or so ago about my young hen being attacked by my dog. She is well now and I took her out to reunite her with her parents but they didn't want her around them. Her dad (the rooster) kept trying to chase and spur her! Her mom tried to peck at her and ran her off away from them. I have my young hen in the house again because the parents keep trying to attack her. I had her inside for 1 week while she was heeling and while I was tending to her wounds. What do I do now? She used to walk around with her mom and dad and I thought they would be happy to see her again but they don't care about her and don't realize she is their baby anymore! Why are the parents acting like this and how can I return my young hen to them? I need your advice!!
