I just isolated an injured hen. This is only the second time I've ever isolated a chicken. The first time it was my adult hen Lilith. Lilith, being the outcast of the flock, really didn't mind her two days of isolation. I think she actually enjoyed eating and drinking in peace. The hen I have just isolated, in a wire crate, within the coop (with the other chickens right there) is losing her mind over being penned. She's throwing herself against the bars. In the past, with minor injuries, I've never isolated. My reasoning being that the stress from the isolation does more harm than allowing them to be with their flock, even if they heal slower. What is your opinion?
