    I'm a noob here. Ihave a year old hen that had her scalp opened. I doctored her and she healed well. I have kept her separate from the flock. When I try to reintroduce her the rooster attacks her and trys to open her scalp. How can I move her back to the flock? Thanls

    Sounds a lot like your rooster is telling you he'll make a delicious soup. I personally would have no tolerance whatsoever for a cockbird who injures a hen; he's doing the opposite of his job and a cockbird who doesn't protect his hens is a cockbird with no value.
