Lady was a very sick little lady, but I think I can safely say that she has made a wonderful comeback. I still believe that her left wing is paralyzed but she has pretty much learned to deal with it. I have been keeping her isolated during her illness, but as of now, I can see no reason not to reintroduce her into the run. I currently have her in a large dog kennel and five to six times a day I am allowing her out in the front yard to forage and exercise. The first few days she could barely stand, had absolutely no balance and would list to the left. Her toes were curling under - I thought she was a goner. I have been trying every remedy that was suggested here and have been very diligent in her care. While she still can't move her left wing and somehow I think this may be a permanent thing - she is walking completely normal. She forages for bugs and worms and is eating like a champ. She seems to have no vision problems, etc. I know that when she first became ill, once the other chickens realized it, they began to jump on her and peck at her feathers. I know that reintroducing her is not going to be easy and I will have to be with her to make sure she is safe. I have a couple of questions about how to safely place her back into the fold. As I said I know that when she is out among the other girls I will have to be with her, but I cannot stand guard 24/7. We do not have a separated run so it's not as if I can place her adjacent to them as they get used to her again - but I do have the large dog kennel that has the wire gate on the front. When I can't be with her would it be okay to place the kennel into the run with the door closed and do as I am doing now and go out five or six times a day to allow her with them as I stand guard. The kennel is a special order, "giant" size for a dog over 160 pounds - so she can stand and actually walk around in it while she is confined. Would that be sufficient to let the other girls get used to her - seeing her through the gate. How long does a reintroduction process typically take and approximately how long would it be before I can ascertain if they are ever going to accept her. If they aren't going to let her back into the fold, we are going to need to make plans to build and adjacent run and small house for her. I don't want to rush it, but I can't see any real point in not trying.
