The last time I had one mean hen to the other hens, sweet as pie to me. She has been rehomed, and doing great I have now a almost 6 month old NHR, that has an injured leg. Seems a bit better, but needs to go back to the flock. She shows no outward signs of an injury, but limps. Have taken and listened to all the advice on here, to help her heal, and have chosen to see if she makes it or not. It is not in my hands any more. Put her in a smaller crate than she was, and put her in the outdoor run. Two hen relentllessly attacked her. She is bloody on her comb, and her eye. I stepped in....I had to become the rooster. I have a small 3 foot long piece of wood trim, and used that to deter,by holding the tirm wood to their beak, and not moving it, but it wasn't working. So I had to get my act together from what I have learned on here and became the rooster,,,LOL As they walked up to attack her,and did, I stepped in and pushed down firmly, but to let them know, this would NOT stand !!! LOL It took almost 3 hours, and then I seen some obedience from my flock towards her...I felt better, but I have to work long hours tomorrow, and we have a small to medium chance of rain/storms...I have Sunday off, but am worried about her tomorrow... Any help. After the attacks, and was suprised they could get that far in the crate to get to her, she was looking in shock, comb/wattles went pale pink, and her eyes kept shutting, I ran to get her eletorlytes (sp?), and over the last hour seemed better. Can I do more...can I help her more? Don't want to remove her at this time, as they let up, a bit, and she needs to remain. Gosh I am SO lost on this..any help, any advise, and more info to help you??? Thanks in advance !
