I have a BR (Lucy) that has a foot paralysis for about 2 months. First thought was injury but i'm now leaning toward Merecks. She seems to be doing fine, lays almost daily, eats drinks no real issues so I'm just letting her be. I move her around the yard when I see she's struggling to get to her destination. My problem is this, the low chicken in the pecking order (Clover) has developed quite a relationship with her. She pretty much stays by her side when they are free ranging. Clover will do the digging for Lucy and they both enjoy the fruits of Clover's labor. I love that she doesn't leave Lucy's side, I would hate for her to feel isolated since she can't keep up with the rest of the girls. Roosting is where i'm having issue's. I have to place Lucy on the roost at night, we created a spot for her that allows her to balance (like a 1x6 piece of board) because she can't grip the 2x4 perch. If I move Clover next to Lucy am I disturbing the natural order of things? I have to boot the other girls off of Lucy's "perch" anyways when I put her to bed so does it matter I'm moving them?
