Speaking of Ivy, she had not been off the nest for 40 hours, so I lifted her off and put her on the ground. I waited beside her to protect her while she came out of her trance. It took about 3 minutes. As soon as she was alert, she ran for the water. While she was drinking, I made her a mash with mealworms on top. She's confined to the henhouse with her mash to prevent the others eating it. When she's finished eating, I'll let her out to play. I think she'll go back to the nest within an hour.
