My #1 lead lady was attacked by our new cockrel for a second time. After the first time I brought her in the house in a crate to recover: I think he attacked her bc she was sickly for a couple of days with sneezing and then wheezing. In hindsight I should have brought her in when I first noticed. Anyway, after 4 days of being in our house (she'd spend time walking around the kitchen with my 6 cats I reintroduced her late last night. Today I found her bloodied and huddled in the freezing grass in a corner of the yard. I was heartbroken. I brought her back into the house, put her in the crate and in a bathroom with a space heater until she warmed up. The blood was dripping off her so bad and it looked much worse than it actually ended up being. I bathed her and then used the blow dryer on her and put pet balm on all the boo-boos. She had her peanut butter oatmeal with blueberries and is sleeping peacefully in the crate in a spare room. Anyways I noticed after the second day last week she wasn't pooping in the crate, and was wondering if hens can be housebroken? When I bring the crate into the kitchen and open the crate door she steps a few steps out then does her business (thank goodness it's linoleum, not carpet!) She eats and drinks some camomile tea (a friend said I should give her 25% camomile in her drinking water for her immune system - okay! LOL) walks around for an hour or so, does do a few poops, then I crate her back up. Ideally she'd be up with the rest of the flock, but I am back to nursing her back to 100%. I'm afraid that the next time she's up with the rest, the little roo will do it again or worse, and am anticipating making her a House Hen. Is it do-able? Again, I do have 6 cats who have free range of the house and yards. Sharing cream cheese TY in advance!
