I have a Polish hen that has been at the bottom of the pecking order since day 1. Recently the other hens have been plucking her feathers, a lot. I'm on my way to the farm store to get the salve to put on her bare, slightly bloody spots, and I plan to separate her at night which is when the pecking takes place. Coop and run size is not the problem. As far as I know, nutrition is not a problem either. My question is: Can I put the hen in one of the nesting boxes, sealed off with chicken wire overnight to keep her out of harms way even though she wouldn't have access to food and water during the overnight hours? Do chickens eat or drink through the night?
