I have a hen who is in a hospital coop recovering from a coyote attack back in August. Her wound has healed but it's taking some time for the feathers around it to grow back in. I thought she was ready for reintegration with the rest of the flock but the other girls are too interested in her bald spot and pecked it bloody the other day. Luckily the injury wasn't serious (just to the top layer of skin), but I have her back in the hospital coop to let that heal and give the feathers more time to grow in and cover it. The poor thing has been in the hospital coop for 6 weeks now and is holding up well (it's next to the main coop so she can see/hear everyone else and free ranges with them under supervision), but I can tell she's lonely and bored in there. I've been giving her treats that require her to peck and work a little for them to keep her entertained, plus let her out to hang out with me by herself, but I can't have her out all the time, obviously. I've read on here about folks using stuffed toys as surrogate "friends" for young chicks who are by themselves; has anyone tried this with adult chickens? Does it seem to help? Not that it's the same as being back to having a normal chicken life, but at least she'd have another something to snuggle against at night since she's not on the roost with everyone. Thanks in advance!
