    We have a bantam pullet that's had a real hard time coming back from Coccidiosis. All the others bounced right back but this girl's had several relapses. Right now she's eating like a trooper and her poops are great but she seems weak especially in her feet. She been in a dog kennel for most of a month.

    My husband is going to rig up a low perch for her and I'm going to set up an outisde pen for afternoon outties when I get home.

    Any other recommendations on how to get her healthy enough to go back out in the coop with her sibs?

    Cocci can be brutal......I would just continue what you're doing...great ideas. If she's a bit down, the others may pick on her so I'd watch for that. Chickens don't like being alone, so she may perk up if she's back with her friends......I'd keep some vitamins/electrolites in her drinking water.....Good luck with her!
