I have taken in a chicken that needed a home (what was I thinking?), and we are having some difficulty adjusting her. The people we got her from said she hasn't laid an egg in about four months, but I think she may have been going through a slow molt. She otherwise seems very healthy, and went through an isolation period with no signs of disease or issues. I've read all of the articles I could find about integrating a new chicken, and I know my girls are going to be put off for a while, but was looking for any other advice. She has never been around other chickens in her life (she is just over a year), and seems terrified of them. Two of my girls seem ok, two want to jump her every time she is around. So far she is staying in her own coop, she won't come out to range unless we physically remove her, but once she is out she will forage. She's not really eating much, except for the treats I'm giving her she has pretty much avoided food for several days now. Would it be okay to put one of the girls that seems fine in with her for a few days? Or should I keep my flock intact and just deal with the rough patches of integrating? I don't want the poor girl to get beaten up, she is so timid she will def be bottom of the pecking order. Any advice is appreciated! Not really sure why I did this........didn't want her to end up in a pot I guess.
