    I just read your original post about scarlet and I have a suggestion for re-introducing her to the flock. I have a cockrel that is 9 weeks old and I hatched him in my incubator. He was one of two chicks that hatched but one of the chicks was eaten by a racoon. He stayed inside the house at night in a large box with a roost that I custom designed for him. I could not put him in the coop at night with the others, even though they were just a few weeks older than him, because they chased and pecked him. They would not let him eat or drink. I started putting him up on the roost after dark and letting them all out together in the mornings. During the day he would come as close to the others as possible without being chased, just b/c he wanted some type of chicken company. It has now been about 1 1/2 weeks and puts himself up to roost in the coop and they will let him "hang out" with them now.It just took time for them to accept him but it was much easier for them to consider with alot of space.
