In the Brooder
- Nov 13, 2015
Florence was left to me by a neighbor recently. She's been pecked and has a large bald spot on her neck, even larger now that she's molting. It's going down to freezing tonight and she has no one to huddle, less feathers, and that enlarging bald spot. I found out today I had the wrong feed to help her keep warm... scratch and peck 3 grain. - more of a summer supplemental feed. I went and got her a fortified blend today - same brand, which I read is supposed to help her generate heat. Fed her grains, fruit, veggies, and a little seed today also. My question is (don't laugh, haha) - Should I bring her into the laundry room tonight since she doesn't have much going for her as far as keeping or generating heat, especially alone. (My plan is to integrate her into a flock come spring - if it's posible to do it safely.) THANK YOU!!!!
