    one of our chickens is injured
    we have had her in the garagde, but its going to get pretty cold
    if shes in the coop she wont freeze, but she might get pecked
    if shes in the garadge she wont get pecked but she might get cold
    it´ll be like 1 or 0 degrees, but shes lower on the pecking order
    we are increadibly worried, what should we do, in the garadge or in the coop?

    Can you place her in a small cage, and either bring her inside the house since she is injured, or inside the coop? Heat lamps can be dangerous, but she might need one in the cold garage. A small ceramic heater might even be better. What kind of injury has she sustained?

    she has a scrape wound near her vent, and a chicken sitter is coming over, but she´ll be at work during the day, and she has to get up early.
