So our little Polish has just returned to our flock of 3 (including her) after a recovery from a dog bite. She is a super expensive little chicken now...and she hasn't even laid an egg yet! Oy! Anyway, she was in our bathroom for about 1.5 weeks and then we started putting her out in the coop and run while the other 2 girls were free ranging in the yard for another 1.5 weeks. Wednesday the vet said she could go back out with the other girls. Our wynadotte has been chasing her a lot and occasionally pecking at her. Grrrr! I check her injury location in the morning and it has looked good the past 2 mornings. Last night when I checked her injury it looked a little raw but it may be her picking at her own scabs. It looked better this morning. My question is how long does this reintroduction hostility usually last. We are planning on going out of town for Easter and they will not be able to free range. I worry about our little Polish being trapped in our small coop for 3 days! We may have to have a neighbor let them out and put them up but I was hoping to avoid them being out of the coop when we are out of town. Wishing we had built our bigger coop by now! Oh, here is a pic of our coop with the chickens during Felicity's confinement.
