This morning, in the dim light, I noticed one of my hens looking as though she had an injury. Although I didn't see blood, I noticed a section of her back and leg that were matted and wet. I was in a rush, so I quickly segregated her in a crate in the coop, and asked DH to have a look before he went to work. I suspected it was maybe just poop or wet, but I wasn't sure, since it was very early and the light was dim. DH went down and had a look, wiped her off a bit and determined that it was just poop. He wondered how she had pooped all over herself, and I said she probably roosted under someone (we have a ladder leading up to the roost and some girls will sit there sometimes). So, she is cleaned off, but now she is wet. And, although it is not freezing cold here, it is a cool damp morning. I just went down and fluffed her up a bit with a fleece, but she is still damp. I have kept her segregated, for now, worrying that they may peck at the wet spot (??? would they do that?). What is best? Do I keep her segregated until she dries? Let her out and hope she fluffs up (although it is cool, the sun is coming out)? If I let her out she can sit closer to the light (we have a regular bulb, not a heatlamp on in the coop). Or should I actually bring her indoors where she can dry quickly and then get her back into the flock? The things I never knew I would worry about in life... Seriously? What to do with my wet hen??
