I took on an injured baby chick at 2 days old. I wasn’t sure if she (I don’t actually know yet if it’s a pullet or cockerel) would thrive because because she couldn’t walk. I nursed her carefully and while the one leg is deformed she can now walk. I won’t get into the whole process because my real question is this. Since I have been so close to her since she was very young she is totally imprinted on me. She is just about three weeks old and I am starting to take her outside while supervised so she can explore and be a chicken. I’ve tried to leave her in a very secure coop with food and water but when I walk away or she can’t see me she starts screaming. I had no idea something this small could be so loud. I ran a short errand and when I got home my neighbor told me she screamed (more like very loud distressed chirping) the entire time. Luckily I am in a situation where I can bring her to work with me (who brings a chicken to work, lol) but obviously I can’t keep doing that. Can anyone offer me some advice on how to transition her to being ok in the coop? She’s still pretty young but bigger everyday and it seems more and more attached as well. Do I go with tough love and let her scream it out until she realizes that she’s fine or do I go soft and slow? I don’t have that much time. I can’t bring her with me to work everyday for much longer (1 week max and that’s really pushing it) as they have already been so tolerant. I love this little thing. What do I do?
